Carbon Arts is working in partnership with artist, Pierre Proske, to develop .Blush – a public media arts work on a large scale that responds to the energy performance of the built environment. The project, supported by an Australia Council for the Arts ‘Creative Australia’ grant, re-imagines a sustainable building with a skin that ‘blushes’ and changes hue based on the energy usage, with ‘freckles’ consisting of thermochomic and electrically activated discs.
We are working in partnership with a number of stakeholders to research the location, scale, interpretation and technological design for this project. Our vision is to realise the .Blush project in a built environment context by mid-2014. With innovative and emotive visualisation of energy saving/consumption we hope to better preserve our resources and environment.
