About my solar art creations and their purposes

Hello everyone!
Is sun shining at your place? Being honest, sun doesn't shine often here in Brussels but still, in my studio, everything is always on the move!
Even if you don’t see it...sun is always there, providing energy to the Planet Earth and to my solar art creations of course... :)

You are probably wondering on which consist my creations…
I'm mostly known thanks to my "Dancing Solar Flower”, consisting of an engine running by means of a solar cell and to which a paper flower head is applied. The solar cell converts light into electricity that powers the engine and enables the flower to move as long as there is light.

Why flowers?
Actually, lot of patterns exists, but flowers have a special signification to me: with their colours and fragrances they are able to bring a wave of joy also in the most difficult situations.
I want to diffuse a message of hope about our society and about the future of our planet.
As the Planet Heart and the Sun appartain to the entire humanity, also my solar art wants to be accessible and understandable to the widest possible audience.
No language neither education barriers will prevent someone to understand flowers and sun power! An example?! Have a look at the Singapore Art Museum website... :) my Dancing Solar Flowers will be exhibited there from 18 May 2012 to 12 August 2012.

With my Dancing Solar Flowers I both create Fields and Vertical Gardens, as you can see in pictures below...

Children are always curious about my creations: of course, they are attracted by colors and movement but then, as normal, they start asking tons of questions...that's what I wish! 
I really wish people to ask questions and to interrogate themselves about renewable energies and the future of our planet! Everyone should think about it, because the Planet Earth belongs to everyone and everyone needs to take care about it!
