Energy is complex and mysterious.
The system in which it is generated and distributed is too large and too complex to understand easily. We take for granted the resources that goes into the process of collecting, refining, processing, and delivering power to us, and are often blind to its impact on global carbon emissions.
When it arrives, in the form of power that keeps our devices, lights, and utilities on – it is all the same. This lack of visibility and knowledge prevents us from truly understanding our consumption. This practice erroneously makes energy feel anonymous and of infinite supply.
In a world powered by renewables, energy becomes local and variable based on weather patterns.
The weather is not just outside, but by lending power to the renewables running your devices and infrastructure it is inside as well.
This should change the shape of not just our built environment, but also how we relate to energy culturally.
We believe it is necessary for us to adapt many aspects of our behaviour to embrace the natural cycles that these sources bring. From the our sense of time to the language we use, from
our celebrations to the ways in which we share with others. Our futures depend upon it.
To fight climate change, we must radically alter our relationship with energy.
This project aims to make senseable the material quality of otherwise-intangible, complex and somewhat magical nature of energy systems.
Energy Proverb Net explores the historical and future use of proverbs in renewable energy projects.
Intimate Infrastructures explores how domestic objects can alter our relationship with energy systems.
Rhythm of Energy's Hymn explores how our organisation of time can be altered to relate to energy.
