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 addition, three cameras captures the surrounding landscape, the sunrise and sunset and images of the flower itself in its daily tilting and rotation movements. Sunflower, Sentinel of Climate Change, invites us to be witnesses of the changes that are occurring.
