A "Fill in your own pattern!" workshop has been carried out at the Hopewell Center in Hong Kong on 22nd of April 2013.
Alexandre Dang thanks the organizers: Alliance Française de Hong Kong, The East, French May and the Hennessy Road Government Primary AM School who made this workshop possible.
The students were invited to create their own "Dancing Solar Flower" from a special edition "Fill in your own pattern!" by artist Alexandre Dang. First, the students cut out the outline of the flower and then colored it with their own pattern. Finally the flower head was set up onto a solar engine and the "Dancing Solar Flower" was ready!
An exhibition with all the realizations of the participants has been organized.
You may ask how a "Dancing Solar Flower" can move? Each "Dancing Solar Flower" is composed of a photovoltaic cell producing solar electricity that triggers the movement when there is light. The more light there is, the faster the "Dancing Solar Flower" moves! When covering the solar cell, the "Dancing Solar Flower" slows down!
Our way of life needs to move towards sustainable development: sustainable energies shall play a key role in the future. In this context, the solar-powered flowers contribute raising awareness of the potential of renewable energy for mankind and for the environment.
Enjoy and share sustainable solar art with people you love!
