Aluna Tidal-Powered Clock

Render21_1

To emphasize the renewable resources of ocean currents, the Aluna Tidal Powered Clock display consists of LEDs powered by ocean turbines. A prototype is underway, with intent to establish mirror images of the final in the northern and southern hemispheres. It has three overlapping rings that stand 5 stories high, and span a 45 meter area. The concept is to raise awareness of tidal power, and to remind pedestrians of their modest place in time. (The paradox is that us short people are more likely to occupy larger positions.) [GT]
