What is the value of electricity? We view the production of electricity for the UAE in relation to its consumption; any amount of electricity a land art installation could produce, would simply be a drop in the ocean. So then, is electricity the problem?
As technology and global thinking shift towards renewable energy production, the UAE finds itself fortunate in its abundance of solar energy. Its natural resources ensure that electricity production will never be a problem.
Our land art [resource] generator aims to inspire a society to question the processes that support their lifestyle. Our proposal is a physical representation of a natural cycle that harnesses solar energy to generate fresh water. By providing low energy alternatives to industrial desalination we can still generate an excess of electricity for the grid.
