Sunflower, sentinel of climate change

"Sunflower is a big robotic flower, with its petals are made by solar panels. These petals generate the necessary electricity during the day to sustain the operations SunFlower is a large scale robotic flower whose petals are made of solar panels. These generate the electricity needed during the day to power the flower’s operations as weather station and for lighting at night. The flower monitors environmental conditions of its surroundings: air pollution, UV radiation, temperature and other variables. In..."

Connection Plaza

The participants complete the work of art: When the firs participant step on a circle his/her body weight turns on a device which lifts a telescopic tower somewhere else, trying to call someone, like a phone ringing. If a second participant answers the call stepping on the circle in front of the raised tower, he/she will raise the tower in front of the first participant establishing a two way connection...."
