Thank you Pam Stuckey at Renewable Envoy for inviting us to speak and to everyone who attended last evening's discussion at Las Vegas City Council Chambers. The event received a very welcome notice in Las Vegas Weekly:
In 2010 the Land Art Generator Initiative held its first international design competition for innovative and art-based solutions to the renewable energy landscape. Teams from more than 40 countries submitted ideas and concepts, from sculptural wind turbines, solar pyramids and solar carpets to minimalist fields designed to harvest natural energy.
Tonight LAGI’s co-founders Robert Ferry and Elizabeth Monoian will be discussing the role of technology in art at the Las Vegas City Council Chambers. Public Art within the Urban Fabric of a Sustainable Future, hosted by Southern Nevada’s Renewable Envoy, is part of LAGI’s focus: Renewable energy infrastructures placed harmoniously within our urban and suburban landscapes through collaborations between architects, artists, scientists and engineers. Capture, convert, transform and transmit.
Tonight’s presentation comes amid LAGI’s fourth biannual international competition (held this year in Santa Monica), which is currently seeking innovative ideas for harvesting energy and generating clean water through May 15. February 16, 6 p.m. Las Vegas City Council Chambers, 495 S. Main St.
