The long-term goal of the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) is to design and construct a series of land/environmental art installations in the UAE that uniquely combine aesthetic intrigue and artistic concept with clean energy generation.
The LAGI viewing platforms will be tourist destinations and educational facilities, drawing people from around the world to experience the beauty of the collaborative artworks. At the same time, the art itself will continuously distribute clean energy into the electrical grid, with the sculptures having the potential to provide power to thousands of homes in the United Arab Emirates.
International artists, designers, engineers, and architects are invited to conceive large sculptural works that use technology to harness the power of nature.
Participants can choose one of three sites in the UAE:
Dubai: Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary
Abu Dhabi: Between Yas and Saadiyat Island
Abu Dhabi: Airport Road Near the Masdar City Site
Prize award for the best design: $15,000
