New Project: Jardín solar/Solar Garden

Jardín solar is a series of sculptures that explore the field of sound interaction, using renewable energy as supply source. The intention is to integrate open source hardware and software, and solar cells as energy source, proposing a series of prototypes that generate audio and relational interfaces.

The creatures in the “Solar Garden” are entities of light. They feed themselves from electrons, process their energy and translate it into electronic songs. They are sociable and sensible machines, they like public space, where they can call people and invite them to play actively with established chance and ethereal frequencies of electronic sound. The sculptures are made of wood, acrylic and plastic, their aesthetics are some times mimetic and some other times are imposed on landscape, decomposing space at a visual and sound level.

Jardín solar is the result of the research process in the subject of ecological energies in electronic arts. Spreading of resources and sustainable knowledge is very important to democratize access and use of technologies. The documentation labor and publication of the work process in electronics, programming and design makes a part of the project, so that those interested are able to consult references and diagrams, and reproduce circuits.
