Clean Energy Art (Renewable Cities PechaKucha Video)

July 25th, 2015 by  


Continuing my series on the Renewable Cities opening PechaKucha presentations (see mine, Bárbara Rubim’s, Mark Jacobson’s, Merran Smith’s, and these 5 others if you haven’t yet), below is a presentation from Robert Ferry and Elizabeth Monoian, CleanTechnica readers and the Founding Directors of the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI). They discuss the pioneering of clean energy art and LAGI, which is quite a lot of fun. They also have a humorous story at the beginning of how they met… and didn’t.

Starting their land art adventures in Dubai in the UAE, Robert and Elizabeth actually discovered a rich history of land art initiatives there. As I’ve written before, there is actually a lot of awareness about global warming and the need to combat it in the UAE. This helped Robert and Elizabeth to launch LAGI.

If you’re into art and you’re into clean energy, this presentation and the broader work Robert and Elizabeth are doing is totally for you, so be sure to check it out.

Also be sure to check out the outcomes of the forum here, and here’s a short summary video of it all:

Or, if you have some popcorn, here’s the full PechaKucha event:
