solar cell_ blue light

This form of energy arrives at our doorstep in astronomical quantities (1000 W/m²), inexhaustibly and free of cost from our very own star.

 

The Sun, one million kilometers in diameter and as large as one million earths, is an enormous nuclear reactor consuming millions of tons of fuel every second, and emitting inconceivably large amounts of energy into space.

Only one tiny fraction reaches our planet (less 

than 0.002%), but its influence enables 

our survival and progress.

 

Humans have created a device to harness this energy and transform it into electricity. It comes freely and yet we mostly ignore it and waste it. This clean and renewable energy would probably enable us to take better care of our planet and ourselves.

 

In the first images of this series, it is

trapped behind bars.

Magic crystals capture the photons hitting their surface after traveling from the nuclear reactor in the sky, and transform its light into a flow of electrons. Their spatial arrangement forms microstages, traps for light quanta generating electricity with every ray of sunshine.
