Can renewable energy technologies become a part of the
Weston-super-Mare beach experience?
The LAGI SEE MONSTER Art & Energy Challenge
invites students to design a renewable energy artwork that provides
clean electricity to the historic Tropicana at the beach.
for students age 12 to 18
The LAGI SEE MONSTER Art & Energy Challenge is a chance for students
to put their design and technology knowledge and skills to the test!
Students age 12 to 18 are invited to imagine an work of
public art for the Weston-super-Mare seaside that uses renewable energy technology as the medium for the art.
We provide a Toolkit that guides you through the design process step by step. The LAGI Toolkit has been created in partnership with teachers, and has links to Design and Technology / Science and Technology / Technologies.
It also draws on students' science and geography learning and their
artistic and creative writing skills.
This challenge is all about big and bold ideas!
Don't feel too constrained (nothing is being constructed), but you should abide by the laws of physics (no levitating solar panels), and your renewable energy design should be based on technologies that have been tested
(no perpetual motion machines, please!).
If your idea meets the design guidelines, it may be selected to be part of an exhibition on the Land Art Generator Initiative website.
What We're Looking For
Your clean energy-generating artwork concept should:
∙ Use proven clean energy technology to generate electricity.
∙ Bring new visitors to the Weston-super-Mare seafront.
∙ Communicate a message or an important story to visitors.
∙ Be timeless, beautiful, and in harmony with nature.
