SPACESHIP FOR SPACESHIP EARTH
Spaceship for Spaceship Earth is a floating geodesic sculpture that will travel the coast of Maine and be moored in various locations as a transient public artwork. This floating pod, inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller, will be outfitted with photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, and a small hydroelectric generator to convert wave energy into onboard power. Batteries will be used to store energy that can later be turned into light, sound or heat. In addition, sensors will be used to record information about humidity, wave movement, temperature and location, to be converted into visual and sonic artwork.
Made possible by a grant from the Kindling Fund.
