Photon Frame

photovoltaic panel, frame, enamel, electronics, speaker

This work investigates both the technical capabilities and the somewhat obvious formal, visual qualities of photovoltaic (solar) panels (along with their punning value). This work uses available light only – no mains power or battery – and responds in a fairly simple and modest way to its immediate environment and the people in it by collecting available light energy and emitting sound energy.
