About the event
French artist, Alexandre Dang, designed these gadgets to promote the work of his non-profit, Solar Solidarité, to encourage appreciation of solar energy as a solution to the world’s energy needs. There are installations of “Dancing Flowers” and other designs in different countries that Dang hopes will inspire more use of solar solutions. Through his efforts, solar electrification has been provided to a hospital in Senegal, a school in Mali, and an orphanage in Tanzania. The concept is pretty simple: "Each solar work of art is made up of an engine and a solar cell. The solar cell collects sunlight and turns it into electricity. With electricity, the motor starts and the art moves."
