Art Exhibition features our solar panels
Date Posted:14 January 2019
Artist James Geurts had an exhibition of his artwork in December 2018 and one of the artworks featured our solar panels. James visited our showroom and we spend time going through all the various solar panel options that would meet his vision for the finished art piece.
The finished work was constructed from two of our 90W lightweight flexible solar panels.
Description of the Artwork
The artwork titled Greenwich Mean Time – 0 Degrees: International Date Line- 180 Degrees’, 2018, is laser etched solar cells on Aluminium composite panel, Neon, exposed wiring, 400 x 300cm
Greenwich Mean Time – 0 Degrees takes the shape of time zone zero, situated in a binary with the line marking the first hour of the new day on earth, the International Date Line- 180 Degrees.
The artwork was on display at the Greenaway Art Gallery Adelaide, 21 November to 21st December 2018
The exhibition titled ‘Seismic Field’ examined the relationship between geophysical forms and consciousness. Geurts intervenes the processes of scanning, polaroid photography and 3d mapping as site actions, disrupting the form and colour field, blurring the lines between geology and technological praxis. The works investigate seismic phenomena and cultural context, amplifying their perceptual and physical thresholds.
