To promote the importance of alternative energy, JIANDYIN conducts a socially-engaging art project for Thailand Biennale 2018. The duo artists will collaborate with three groups of local people; the local business that focuses on alternative energy, especially the solar power, the group of local taxi drivers, and local Ramadan musicians. The artists installed solar power systems on the public transportation that travels around the city during the day collecting electric energy. This energy is used to activate the LED light and audio systems when the vehicles park at night. The system also connects to the already existing public sculptures located near the parked vehicles. This encourages the visitors to touch and interact with the sculptures to activate the light and sound systems. For decades populations have been informed that the use of alternative energy can save the planet, but, until today, the world still relies mainly on the fossil fuel. To save the planet, we have to start with ourselves. The purpose of creating Free Sun Days [Krabi: Model Study for Green Energy Community] is to show that alternative energy can be adapted to daily lives. Alternative energy is easy, practical, and available for everyone. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
