Visualizing Calgary's Yearly Electricity Demand
The installation is a visual comparison of the energy requirements & environmental impacts of five electrical energy sources (solar, wind, nuclear, coal, natural gas). Each model, which is spatially related to the other models, represents the spatial and fuel requirements of generating Calgary's yearly electricity demands with only that electricity source. Installation used 3d printing, laser cutting, dip molding, and lots of sweat.
