Current Window Installation in Soho
‘Current Window offers us an example of energy-harvesting in a natural and aesthetic way, for our future’
Current Window is a modern version of stained glass with current technologies. The coloured pieces of glass generate electricity from daylight and can even harness diffuse sunlight. This electricity can be used to power a whole range of electrical appliances. The coloured glass squares are made of ‘Dye Sensitised Solar Cells,’ which use the property of colour to create an electrical current - just like photosynthesis in plants. Similarly to the
various shades of green chlorophyll absorbing light, the coloured windowpanes harness energy.
