The Dancing Screen by Eleonora Nicoletti is a dynamic architectural installation that generates electric power from the sun. Nicoletti designed the screen as a charging point for passers-by to quickly power up their electronic devices. The screen is constructed from thin film solar cells and its modules are continuously reconfigured as they “dance” in the wind. The power generated by the panels is stored in the base of the screen, and visitors can plug into docks that extend from the foot.
