Visual Voltage exhibition opening in Washington DC March 31

30 March, 2009 - 23:13

A lamp that opens up like a beautiful flower when energy consumption in a household has been low for some time or a clock where energy use for the whole household is visualized in real time – these are just two examples of prototypes shown in the exhibition Visual Voltage, now on display at House of Sweden in Washington DC.

Washington DC is the second stop for the touring exhibition that started out in Shanghai in October 2008. Visual Voltage explores our understanding of energy and in a broader sense aims to increase interest in energy use and environmental questions. The exhibition shows results from three different research studios at the Interactive Institute that work interdisciplinary with art, design and energy.

Visual Voltage is a collaborative effort between the Interactive Institute and Svenska institutet that will be on tour until 2010.
