solar electric sculptures concept by michael jantzen

 

california-based architect michael jantzen imagines multi-size steel ‘solar electric sculptures’ for placement in a variety of contexts. a single photovoltaic panel tops each structure, with two skinny, massive legs that rest directly on the earth. in addition, small seats can be installed around the public art piece, providing charging stations for visitors’ devices, etc.

jantzen’s efforts attempt to increase the appeal of basic solar technology by incorporating function into a single, sculptural unit. electricity gathered can be diverted directly to the community supply (as well as connected benches). michael jantzen conceived ‘solar electric sculptures’ as a discussion project that showcases the potential of public art to increase sustainability awareness
