The Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) has announced the winners for the 2016 Santa Monica competition. Drawing on technologies from fog harvesting to wave energy and transparent solar cells, the proposed installations would generate either renewable energy or drinking water for drought-stricken California. These "civic artworks" would be located "at the breakwater adjacent to the Santa Monica Pier" and are designed to inspire and educate the public on clean energy, the environment, and water issues.
