Examples of Art and Energy’s work are currently on display at the ESI in Penryn as part of an ongoing collaboration with the Solar Labs and Post-doc researcher Katie Shanks.
Come along for refreshments, meet the artists, find out how we work and see a demonstration of our work at the ESI on Friday 27th September
You can see artworks by Chloe Uden and Naomi Wright at the ESI at the University of Exeter in Penryn from Friday 30th August until Friday 11th October.
The artworks are the result of an ongoing creative exchange with post-doc researcher Katie Shanks at the Renewables department at the University of Exeter.
We recently spent a fantastic day at The Big Bang Fair with young people from all across the South West and made a start on 7 new solar panel artworks.
On Friday 12th of July, Chloe, Naomi and Jenny plan to use Ocean Studios Making table in the cafe to do some of the next steps in fabricating the artworks. If you’d like to see us and chat to us about this work, then please pop along between 10am and 3pm.
To be fair, no-one ever told me I couldn’t make solar panel artworks, no-one ever said I couldn’t work in a STEM job and no-one said power-tools are for boys.
But somehow I still felt like power was in the male domain.
We think giving young people the chance to experience their ability to make electricity can give confidence to participate in discussions about our energy future.
