Ivan Henriques SolarFlares model 1

Solar Flares [maquette]

This is the maquette from the project Solar Flares.

The maquette consists in a 30cm diameter circular platform. The stair are on the north east and west position and a water mirror functioning as an arrow, always pointing to the Sun. The platform has a revolving mechanism and it is programmed to follow the position of the Sun autonomously. The calculation of the rotation speed from the revolving platform will be according to the latitude, longitude and the azimuth, specifically from Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke, Belgium. The visitors will experience a constant alignment with the Sun from the latitude 4°05′ / longitude: 51°23′.

Soon will be published the Solar Flares book by Oplage
