Catch this! SPS geocached!
I would like to thank all participants of the "Solar Peace Sculpture Project" all over the world and especially my team in the Saarland that the first step on the way to the big 15-meter sculpture is done. The 6-meter Solar Peace Sculpture is on the campus of the University of the Saarland, the project of the multi-media installation in the base of the sculpture is its way.
The financing of the 6-meter version was made possible by funds from the estate of my sister Catherine George, who always believed that there will be this 15-Meter Solar Peace Sculpture one day and that it will carry its message to the world .
Thank you all guys!
Presentation of initial ideas for the interactive installation in the base of the SPS
DFKI @ University of Saarland supports the SPS
"We plan in line with a course for students to create interactive presentations for the base of the Solar Peace Sculpture. One idea could be that the active presence of the viewer around the sculpture or the active extracted energy of the solar panels will be integrated into the presentation. In line with the sculpture a digital supply is then related to subjects like energy consumption and scarcity of resources. The students get the unique opportunity to participate on an art project."
Prof. Dr. Antonio Krüger (DFKI GmbH, Dezember 2010)

HTW facing new project challenges
With the planned multi-media-installation in the base of the Solar Peace Sculpture different construction details of the sculpture will have to be changed and adapted, like Prof. Dr. Günter Schmidt-Gönner says. The engineers of the HTW prepare these technical components, which should be moved in the next project phase.
