WindNest – An objective of WindNest is to show how renewable energy infrastructure can be seamlessly integrated into urban environments, especially those cherished places in the city that would be unlikely candidates for wind turbines or solar panels.

The renewable energy revolution will have a resounding influence on the design of public space in the coming decades. The Land Art Generator Initiative is showing how innovation through interdisciplinary collaboration, culture, and the expanding role of technology in art can help to shape the aesthetic impact of renewable energy on our constructed environments.

Please join us February 16, 2016 6 pm at the City Council Chambers for a presentation by LAGI – Land Art Generator Initiative.

ROBERT FERRY, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, is the Co-Founder of the Land Art Generator Initiative and Studied Impact. His focus is on designing buildings that go above and beyond current popular notions of sustainability to achieve complete harmony with their local and global environments and with the people that use them.

ELIZABETH MONOIAN is an interdisciplinary artist and designer who is currently working on large-scale international public art projects that both address and expose models of environmental sustainability. Her work has been screened and exhibited in venues throughout Europe, the Middle East, and the United States.

Elizabeth received an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University

We invite any person interested in energy and art to join us and welcome LAGI Founding Co-Director Robert Ferry & Elizabeth Monoian to Las Vegas.

“Airway” El Paso, TX – It was that perfect time of day when the lighting was set off against a deep blue sky.  The vertical axis wind turbines with overlapping blades in perspective provides a complicated visual moire effect that reveals its secret as you pass through the installation.
