Translucent Moon Art

Our first project in Aruba was a presentation of diy cleantech art.

By the light of the full moon, we showcased four technologies built out of repurposed and natural materials to demonstrate the beauty of sustainability to the island community.

On display (and in use) were:

  • Pishi Hooiberg – a haystack urinal for reduced water use and nutrient recovery
  • Moooon – a ‘lunar cooker’ built from a reclaimed fresnel lens
  • The Water Cycle – an Aruban version of a biofilter, made using local sand and cacti
  • Fire Flies – wind-triggered led accent lights as simple environmental monitors

The exhibit was later installed at Colegio San Nicolas for educational purposes.
