Installation: Greetings to the Sun

"Greetings to the Sun" by Nikola Bašić

This public art installation by Croatian architect Nikola Bašić comes to life at sunset in the beautiful coastal town of Zadar, Croatia. This circle of light consists of 300 photovoltaic solar glass plates installed on the stone-paved waterfront, next to his famous oceanic-musical instrument, the Sea Organ.  The LED’s change colour and pattern to create a spectacular show of light to the rhythm of the waves and the sounds of the Sea Organ.  It produces enough energy to be used not only for the installation, but for the lighting of the entire waterfront. The project is a unique example of implementing the use of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency in the city space.
