Photovoltaic art. A PV sunflower was design for an exhibition in Austria


Paul Klee’s word to describe art are: “Art does not reproduce what we see, rather it makes us see”.

Starting from this concept, Konrad Feichtinger created a sunflower sculpture with ertex-solar photovoltaic modules.

The sculpture was designed in order to participate in the national outgoing exhibition in Austria, “Alte Spuren, neue wegen”, or, in other words “Old Traces, new ways”.

The innovative plants produce up to 1400 watts of power. This power, with the help of a control software developed by the Ars Electronia Center in Linz, is delivered to the exposition’s visitors Their height reaches seven meters and they are distributed over nine areas.

The visitors of the exposition are enwrapped in the evening hours by the flower’s colorful light reflected by it’s LEDS. The atmosphere there is fascinating.
Konrad Feichtinger says that the plant produces more energy than the visitors consume.
