Active energy - visual narrative

Leeson, Loraine ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-6684-3911 (2020) Active energy - visual narrative. [Digital artefact]

Abstract

This twelve-year project commenced as a response to Queen Mary University research into older people’s experience failing to inform development of new technologies. Through this artist Loraine Leeson met The Geezers, a men’s group at AgeUK Bow, who wished to work with tidal power. With the help of engineers and further fundraising they developed and tested a prototype turbine for the Thames, held two exhibitions, worked with young people to produce a wind turbine for an AgeUK roof, contributed to three university research projects, conducted numerous joint presentations, collaborated with a seniors’ group in Pittsburgh, and produced floating water wheels to provide aeration for rivers, the latest installed in 2019 in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
