New Energy, gallery 4: Sources

What changes if we make use of alternative sources of energy? And how climate-friendly are they? By-products, risks and aesthetic consequences often stand in the way of objective judgement. We can see an awareness of these issues in the work of designers such as Zoe Papadopoulou and Auger-Loizeau. They demonstrate the extent to which energy is part of the chain of all processes. Energy can be harvested in a variety of ways, but never without consequences, making them difficult to evaluate.
