A Lighting Installation project of Cooper Union presented as part of the IDEAS CITY FESTIVAL – NEW MUSEUM. Led by 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 with backwards motors that will illuminate the streetscape.
