Solar powered pen, 2004

multiple (edition unlimited), solar panel, motor, alligator clips, sticky putty, pen, Dimensions Variable


Solar powered pen was created from a solar power car kit that I purchased at the Salt Spring Island market. I connected a pen to the axel of the motor with sticky putty to create a spinning drawing device that was powered by the solar panel when exposed to sunlight. I created a series of drawings using the pen to harness the suns energy collaborating in the creation of the images.
