Ideas sought for Copenhagen eco-art piece

  • Comment

America-based Land Art Generator Initiative has launched a competition for public art pieces that generate renewable energy

The international competition is on the hunt for interdisciplinary teams to produce art works for Copenhagen’s urban environment.

Previously focusing on Dubai in 2010 and New York in 2012, the 2014 contest is focused around Copenhagen’s former Refshaleøen Shipyards.

Site-specific schemes are called for which join ‘conceptual beauty’ and an ability to feed electricity into the existing grid.

Danish minister for climate, energy, and building, Martin Lidegaard said: ‘The Land Art Generator Initiative will provide new and exciting proposals for approaching the green transition.’

Detailed guidelines will be released January 2014 with information available through the contest page. The contest will close in May 2014, culminating in an award ceremony and exhibition in Copenhagen.
