Exhibition 5th September – 11th October 2019
Art and Energy artists Chloe Uden and Naomi Wright have been collaborating with post-doc researcher Katie Shanks over the past year to challenge the aesthetics of silicon solar PV in order to re-imagine solar panels as places for artworks of the future. Art and Energy will celebrate the first year of this collaboration by exhibiting a number of Solar Panel Art works in the ESI Creative Exchange Space from September to October 2019. The ESI Creative Exchange is open Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.
Research and collaboration
Naomi and Chloe would love to hear from anyone with ideas for further exploration such as:
– Creative participation and co-design, installations, conversations about nature and light (e.g. moths)
– The tiny scale world with big impacts such as about energy, photosynthesis and in nature.
– The duality in the solar artworks – absorbing energy to power something, a process, or translation, the technology.
