Renewable Energy Can Be Beautiful
For International artists

The UAE Land Art Generator Initiative brings together artists,architects, scientists, and engineers in a first of its kind collaboration. The goal of the Land Art Generator Initiative is to design and construct large-scale public art installations across the United Arab Emirates that uniquely combine aesthetic intrigue with clean energy generation. The art itself will continuously distribute clean energy into the electrical grid with each land art sculpture having the potential to provide power to thousands of homes. 

The first step is the 2010 competition. Please visit to view the open call for the design of aesthetic and pragmatic solutions to one of the most pressing issues of our time: renewable energy. The works should be conceptually engaging while functionally pragmatic: solution-based art employing technology in harmony with the natural world.
