The Solar Sinter Project may be an art project at its heart but it puts the focus on some important issues. We have a resources shortage and we have an energy shortage. However, are are types of energy we’re not shy of – like the sun and types of resources we still have plenty of – like sand.
The solar sinter is a device which takes its power from the rays of the Sahara sun while using the sand from the same desert to make glass sculptures.

Science, art of both?
Do think this is nothing more than a gimmick or does the art installation suggest a possible direction for future tech?
