Exhibition in Spa

Spring is also time for day trips and pic-nics… we didn’t have a pic-nic but we drove from Brussels to Spa to install an exhibition at the Galerie Azur.
The exhibition was welcomed enthusiastically by citizens whom, already during the setting-up, where asking for more information about solar art and stopped watching the team at work.

The exhibition was seen by thousands of people during the Francofolies, one of the most important French Music Festival in Europe!

EU Sustainable Energy Week and Solar Art Conference

Et voilà! Another flash-back comes…
The EU Sustainable Energy Week 2012 was an interesting time for us with the organization of both a significant exhibition and a conference about Solar Art.
A Field of Solar Turning Sunflowers was exhibited at the heart of the European Commission, the Berlaymont Piazza: this was realized in collaboration with the NGOs Solar Solidarity International and Europe Third World.
An intervention by the EU Commissioner Piebalgs closed the exhibition: this was the occasion to highlight key messages about the EU energy policy and about World Summit “Rio+20”.

The conference on Solar Art, organized by Solar Solidarity in collaboration with Solar Artworks Project, addressed the issue of the integration of sustainable and clean energy creations inside cities of the future.
The panel was composed by Nacho Zamora (Solar Artworks), Eleonora Nicoletti (Loop Ph), Drzach &Suchy and I.  A quite large audience followed the conference with interest, asking questions and participating to the debate. 

Do not forget, EU Sustainable Energy Week is a yearly event J…I look forward to see you there in 2013!

Back on track!

It is long time since the last post. What an incredibly busy periods are Spring and Summer!
Let’s make a short summary of the last period…are you ready? We will start from the end: the exhibition at Couleur Café.
Couleur Café is one of the biggest festivals in Belgium and gathered more than 70.000 people this year. The expo “Cool Art Café” was dedicated to the relationship between Mankind and Nature and to sustainable development: “Nature, je t’aime, moi non plus” was its title.

Solar Art contributes to the change towards sustainable development which seems to be necessary to reestablish certain equilibrium between the human exploitation and the ecosystem: a “Field of Dancing Solar Flowers" was rocking full of joy and energy in this colorful atmosphere hence bringing optimism and hope for the future.
