Land Art Generator Directors, Robert Ferry & Elizabeth Monoian, participated in a writing workshop that took place at NREL, organized by Arizona State University's Center for Science and the Imagination and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society.
Science fiction authors and artists from the Denver area collaborated with researchers, experts, and graduate students from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Arizona State University for a unique workshop that used science fiction as a lens to explore the technological, social, and cultural aspects of a transition to a clean energy future powered by renewables.
Held at NREL February 26–27, 2020, the Urban Electrification and the Future of Cities workshop brought together a cross-disciplinary group of experts from various areas of science, engineering, and the arts to create narratives of hope and visions for the future—inspiring art, short stories, and essays for a book titled The Weight of Light, Volume II.
The new book is a follow-on to the first volume published by Arizona State University after a similar workshop held last year. It will be available for free in digital formats later this year.
