Search for Energy (Environment art project)
Search for Energy | Site-specific sculpture Environment Art | Chiman Dangi 2009
Around the globe a major cause of discontent among people is the scarce availability of energy resources. Every country tries to sustain itself and meet the challenges of the developing world. In the 21st century there is more and more likelihood that nations will go to war over energy resources.
The search is on for non-conventional, abundant, inexhaustible, non-polluting, cheap, and efficient sources of energy that can sustain the human race in the long run.
My sculptural creation is inspired by simple village folk. With a little help from technology, Biogas as a fuel can be a locally made alternative source of energy. It is cheap, not much polluting, sustainable and affordable.
This sculpture is created from dried cow dung cakes. It asks us to look for simple, uncomplicated, practical and innovative ways of using the world’s resources. If we think and work together, we can leave a better world for our children.
