PHOTOVOLTAICS 09, Workshop
Between 11th and 13th May 2009, MMC Kibla invites you to the PHOTOVOLTAICS 09 workshop conducted by Bartaku (Bart Vandeput, FoAM).
The workshop dedicated to the Photovoltaic Effect on U is based on Bartaku's ongoing research project PhoEf: The Undisclosed Poésis of the Photovoltaic Effect. Participants in the workshop will explore the realm of photovoltaics: the conversion of light into electrical energy.
The workshop provides a hands-on session where playful observations and interactions with light are accompanied by experiments with various solar energy technologies and low power devices (without battery back up): the design of a simple pv-set up, calculate the power requirements and measure the power output using natural/artificial light. The participant will learn how to make dye sensitized solar cells.
This practical part is complemented with a theoretical discussion that contextualizes photovoltaics against the backdrop of the access to energy of mankind in the post-fossil fuel society.
Works of artists/creatives will be shown and discussed.
* The workshop participants will have the possibility to: interact with light under various conditions; use solar cells for producing electricity for low power devices; learn how to design a solar powered system; learn the basics of measuring and calculating electrical power; learn how to make dye sensitized solar cells. Furthermore they will acquire insight in the structure of the PV-market (how and where to purchase). Finally, they will have the opportunity to discuss the conditions of future production and distribution of electrical energy.
No preexisting knowledge is required. Motivation is all.
Workshop participation fee is 10 EUR. The number of participants is limited to 12. Please apply until 8 May to the e-mail address: email@example.com or by phone to 02/2294012 (Lidija Pačnik).
The workshop is part of gRig project - Guild for Reality integrators and generators, supported by EU Culture Programme. ACE KIBLA program is supported by Ministry of Culture, Municipality of Maribor and The Slovenian Office of Youth. KIBLA is a part of Multimedia Centres Net Slovenia.
