Abstract:

  • SolarCircus (2009-2012) is an interdisciplinary platform for eco-dialogue about the future of renewable energy. At ISEA2012, SolarCircus will take the form of a fun, two-hour, hands-on workshop. The workshop facilitator, Tiffany Holmes, will introduce participants to the mysteries and potentials of solar power in the first 15 minutes. All participants build a solar toy from a kit and then “hack” it to create a one-of-a-kind kinetic sculpture. In the last fifteen minutes, the class will assemble the sculptures outdoors as a sun-powered street intervention.
