Lunar Cubit -- Land Art Generator 2010 Winner

Staten Island’s Freshkills Park has just been chosen as the site for the 2012 Land Art Generator Initiative, an exciting competition that will create a stunning piece of public art that will produce clean energy to power New York City homes.

    I wonder how unrestricted is this project in terms of who gets to participate and make a design, because there are a lot of talented individuals out there who are much interested in these kinds of initiatives, like myself(studying architect)! But without doubt the project is a very cool idea and the thought of it being based in Fresh kills-park in 2012 is a stunner, the place looks great now imagine how striking it would look once it's surrounded with them futuristic sculptures like the one i have on my mind right now and it's very Eco-friendly, wow it's gonna be beautiful quiet world class. I wonder how long it's going to take to have one of those in this side of the world(Africa). As the world turns!
