Space for purification
A fishing hut in Cheng Long, Taiwan and its surroundings were converted into a »Place for Purification» where the water, our thoughts and our behavior regarding the environment could be improved. The project »Place for Purification» is a mix of art, science and technology. The main goal is to achieve a better relationship between the people and the environment, the human beings and nature. The installation is a combination between wind sculptures, solar panels and a purifying water system. It was used bamboo, a very renewable resource and recycled materials like plastic bottles. The system work as a distillation plant where the water is pumped from the canal and flows along a half pipe of bamboo. The water is evaporated by the heat of the sun and then collected into a pipeline made by plastic bottles. The distilled water can be used for watering a garden.
