In a collaboration between the community and the sun, Solar Collector gathers human expression and solar energy during the day, then brings them together each night in a performance of flowing light.
Twelve tall shafts rise at angles from a roadside hilltop. Using simple web-based controls, members of the community compose wave-based patterns that flow across pulsing lights that are spaced along the shafts. At dusk, Solar Collector comes to life with the patterns created that day. (to find out more..)
Go to www.solarcollector.ca and create your very own flowing wave pattern!!
