Created by Seattle-based artist Dan Corson in a collaboration between Pacific Science Center and Seattle City Light, these sun-loving, harmonic blooms use regionally manufactured, custom solar panels to generate their own power. Corson has created five flowers up to 33’ tall that will glow when the sun shines through the petals during the day and light up at night. Each flower top contains 48 solar cells that produce 4.6 Wp (watts at peak production) for a total of 1,104 Wp from all five flowers. The electricity generated will make the flowers dance with light through the evening and sing through the day, 365 days of the year. Sonic Bloom combines art and science to help educate about solar energy in the Pacific Northwest and inspire people to consider how they can incorporate renewable energy into their lives.
