The Land Art Generator Initiative on the Aesthetics of Renewable Energy

Fri, Feb 03, 2017 | 11:00 am

The Land Art Generator Initiative will share how they use renewable power generators as public artwork to inspire the public about the promise of a net-zero carbon future. They will highlight how innovation through interdisciplinary collaboration, culture, and the expanding role of technology in art can help to shape the aesthetic impact of renewable energy on our constructed and natural environments. Their work, which often involves a heavy nature of a participatory design process, sets itself into many other overlapping disciplines from architecture and urban design to mechanical engineering and environmental science. This interdisciplinary result has the effect of both enhancing the level of innovation and broadening the audience for the work.

This program is part of the Libraries' Beyond the Page public programming series.

This program is part of our Seeing Stories: Visualizing Sustainable Citizenship series, co-curated by Temple Contemporary, Temple University’s Office of Sustainability, and Temple University Libraries, along with faculty and graduate students from the Tyler School of Art, the College of Liberal Arts, and the Center for the Cinematic and Performing Arts.
