Solar Power Man is a street performance intended to reflect upon the sources of the energy we constantly consume.
Imagined to humanize the idea of energy, the piece is centered on the figure of a strange being with a solar powered armor, a battery on his heart and different charging plugs on his fingers.
As the Solar Power Man absorbs the energy from the sun, he offers his hand to someone in need to charge their phones. When fully charged, he can become very excited and dance around. When his battery gets discharged, he needs some time to rest under the sun and acquire new power.
