View Design Boards


Artist Descriptive Text:
Rather than using sand to measure time, The Solar Hourglass uses the power of the sun to electrify hundreds of homes while providing a breathtaking setting for inspiration and relaxation. The installation consists of an upper and a lower bulb. Dozens of people can gather on the bottom bulb during the day, sheltered by the shade of the top bulb. The project works as a solar central receiver, consisting of an arrangement of small flat mirrors that concentrate their reflection of solar energy on a tank holding a heating medium. Sun-tracking mirrors (heliostats) on top of the upper bulb reflect solar heat onto a cone-shaped set of smaller mirrors that concentrate these reflections and direct them down the neck of the installation.

Artist Descriptive Text:
A wall of greenery with a gap in the middle suggests a way “into the wild.” We are entering a garden without knowing what we will experience. The one sure destination is a monolithic, ephemeral tower, shining on the horizon. Along the way through a field, we discover that the greenery offers multiple spatial experiences with a variety of niches, corridors, and chambers. Closer to the tower, we notice that it quivers in the wind, as does the surface of the land. Leaving the garden, we enter the tower’s forest-like structure. In front of us, a framed panoramic view of Copenhagen, and above us the sun and the sky can be viewed through an undulating filter.

Artist Descriptive Text:
eMotions showcases artistic interpretations of disparate Danish ecosystems, each varying in materials, energy technologies, dimensions, and textures. The installation places on display Denmark's biodiversity while engaging different communities within the city. The artwork is also meant to evoke the image of a large generator, its viewing loop representing the generator’s "belt" and the infinite production of clean energy through its micro-scale generators. The generators are listed below, each representing a type of ecosystem.





Below is the shortlist as chosen by a selection committee in Denmark (in random order
