A small sculptural water turbine uses the River Derwent as a power source which creates a supply to run the LED lights. It also creates surplus energy which is sold to the National Grid. This creates an annual fund which will be allocated to local schools or the Silk Mill to undertake projects for young people in Derby interested in art, architecture and sustainability.
Massive thanks to Seb Boyesen for fabrication and installation and also to Paula Moss for her photographs.
Many thanks too to Mike Preston, the TV team, Helen Oakes and Derby City Council.
