Led by Professor Lydia Kallipoliti, in collaboration with Martha Giannakopoulou and Katerina Kourkoula, a group of engineering, architecture and art students from the Cooper Union will present an off-grid lighting installation at the East 4th Street Cultural District. The installation will be powered by alternative energy generation techniques including solar cells, bioluminescent pods and an interactive performance that will illuminate the streetscape. A series of illuminated chambers of tonic water and energy drinks will be incorporated in the lighting installation, creating a public nonalcoholic suspended bar providing drinks to visitors. This installation is part of FAB and CUISD’s SUSTAIN project and supported by Cooper Union’s Feltman Lighting Fund and the Benjamin Menschel Faculty Fellowship.
Student Team: Alyssa Davis, Laura Quan, Natalia Zawisny, Stephanie Borchers, Shiori Sasaki, Simon Khuvis, WooJong Kim, Glory Day Correw, Anna Kramer.
Free and open to the public.
