If you follow Compaz news, you will know that our activities are currently largely linked to the European Be-Smart project. But what exactly is Be-Smart? What is the purpose of this project?
Through the film we made about the project, we wanted to summarise the different actions that have marked its life, and what they have contributed, combining technological progress and artistic approaches to enable us to see photovoltaic innovation from a disruptive angle.
As Swedish filmmaker and photographer Bobbo Lindblad puts it, the question we must ask ourselves in the current context is: "Do I want to be part of the solution to change things and help save the planet, or am I one of those who is making things worse?"
The Hiperion project, in which Compáz is involved, has chosen its side: the European consortium linked to the project has decided to be part of the solution!
Until 20 December and as part of the Be-Smart project, Compáz is offering the “Watt is Art” exhibition to people visiting the Théâtre du Passage in Neuchâtel.
This summer, Compaz inaugurated “Figli del Sole”, an exhibition part of the Be-Smart project and located in Oliveri, Sicily.
At the heart of "Figli del Sole" are photographic portraits of Oliveri residents, which are intriguingly integrated onto photovoltaic panels and displayed in a public park in Oliveri. The subjects – men, women, and children of the community – reflect the diversity of Oliveri, which is part of the Sicilian county of Messina.
