Eco-Art around Eco-Plant. 2022

This mosaic artwork on the schoolyard of Talentstad Zwolle, consists out of four elements and is build around a Sun Tracing Ecoplant. This is an iron flower with its petals being solar panels.

All first and second year students got an assignment to design the artwork. Their design had to contain perks or a vertical garden. Some of their great ideas were included in the definitive design by Dennie Boxem. During the realisation, all thirty classes of Talentstad send one student to make a personal mosaic design, so that every class was represented.

The artwork is made out of rejected bricks of Aberson B.V. and rejected tiles of Dijkstra Frieste Kleiwaren.

 

This way, the artwork puts difficult terms as sustainability, solar energy, circularity, greening and stimulating biodiversity into direct practice. Familiarising the next generation with it, and raising togetherness by letting lots contribute.
