Solar Flares

The project consists in a 8 meter diameter circular platform, covered with plants. A stair is on the north position and a water mirror functioning as an arrow, always pointing to the Sun. The platform has a revolving mechanism and it is programmed to follow the position of the Sun autonomously. The calculation of the rotation speed from the revolving platform will be according to the latitude, longitude and the azimuth, specifically from Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke, Belgium. The visitors will experience a constant alignment with the Sun from the latitude 4°05′ / longitude: 51°23′.
