We’re excited to see Alex Nathanson recognized for his work with this Verge article! Alex has been active as a multi-media artist for 11+ years. He’s currently engaged in using solar power to create art installations and simple robots.
He helped co-curate Nightlight, a project that turned a Queens garden into an interactive light exhibit, in 2014. He managed Sunset, a Central Park installation that consisted of a solar-powered ice cream truck. Now he’s also spreading his knowledge to others at pioneer works! He’s classes teach students — who don’t need prior engineering experience — how to build sound circuits powered by up-cycled solar cells from Jameco.
He continues to maintain projects that use solar energy to power art to inspire. These projects can be found @ Solar Power for Artists.
