Executive poetics of the Drawing- The Rose Project:
This Drawing is a The Rose Project for a photovoltaic Statue base by Roberto Piaia
The creativity in these projects is exemplary. The sketches are full of minute details that show, even to a distracted eye, what will be the end result.
How are the Sculptures made wrapped in Solar Panels? Drawing- The Rose Project
They are normally modeled in resin, or optionally in bronze. According to personal needs and spaces, I can create them small, medium or large.
Drawing- The Rose Project. Let’s take a female figure as an example: the materials mentioned above remain visible on the face, hands and feet. While the rest of the body is covered, in the part exposed to the sun, by photovoltaic cells. This is possible because I apply SunPower cells.
SunPower photovoltaic panels are flexible and elegant compared to traditional cells. Therefore, they allow me to work them in an artistic way. Drawing- The Rose Project
As for the base that supports the work, it can be of any desired shape or height. Pyramid, trapezoidal or like an orchid petal, etc. The panels I use are: SunPower if the model is curved like a petal or a leaf, or Monocrystalline silicon, if the surface is flat.
On the ground, however, we can put real walkable and non-slip photovoltaic tiles, perfect for the construction of sunny terraces and gardens. They are made with a laminated glass of 6 + 6 mm. Highly resistant.
