1- ENERGY MEET (http://www.energymeet.org/)
We discuss ENERGY "Creativity based", not "Engineering based".
We discuss ENERGY through "Energy-logics", not only "Ecology-logics".
Opening up all kinds of ENERGY issues equally and positively.
ZIIB was a robotic communication bill-board with revolving milk-cartons for pixels.
Its driving force was zero-impact on the environment.
It was designed to generate its own power during an event through solar-panel technology and,
following the event, be completely disassembled with other productive uses found for all its parts.
The event offered a first ‘frozen’ moment for materials and resources.
True to form, all ZIIB's materials later went on to visit other destinations to further generate energy.
The solar panels and batteries were donated to a school in the jungle allowing them to generate
electricity for computer and internet, all servo-motors were donated to the university that assisted
in the construction of ZIIB and all milk cartons were recycled. ZIIB's DNA still lives on!
