Alternative Sources of Energy - Energy 2012 Art Competition

I was supposed to do three pieces on the topic of energy for an art competition, so I decided to play around with the renevables by applying for every given energy source a different contemporary art style.

This one is titled Energy of the Biomass. Since biomass is a solid matter I thought using Nouveau Realisme was a spot - on (if not Arte Povera or Land Art).

This one is called Energy of the Wind. I thought the wind concerns space, ergo I used Concetto Spaziale or Spacialism pioneered by Lucio Fontana. In this way I've literally created a wind by a draft that sweeps through the slash in the middle of the canvas. :)

This one is called Energy of the Sun. Here I employed Simulationism by turnig the stretched canvas into a solar panel. So, the sun gives light and light often creates an illusion, thus the simulation...
