These are shots of an exhibit that TORK did last year at Glacier Ridge Metro Park. These pieces are for the alternative energy exhibit. We did displays for solar and wind power. Yea, we know it’s a bit late getting these images up, but…well…we didn’t have the blog at the time we did this project. So, here they are better late than never, aye? Hope you dig ’em.
There is a solar panel inside the unit, sunlight is directed down through the light tube in the resin sun, this in turn powers the little gizmos inside. People, especially kids, can come up and press the buttons to get each gizmo to whir and spin.
This happens to be one of Mark’s more ambitious metal projects. He hand made each piece for this display. In this display, kids can come up, grab the handle on the back, and spin the turbine. A digital display then shows your wind speed and power, and the turbine wind speed. Fun stuff.
Thanks for viewing, The TORK Crew
