The Land Art Generator Glasgow project launched officially in August 2015 following 18 months of development work. The exhibition in Summer 2016 at The Lighthouse, Scotland's centre for Architecture and Design marked the public announcement of the selected proposal which is now going into detailed design. The project aims to demonstrate the potential for artists, designers and architects to contribute to renewable energy infrastructure and integrate it into a place-making approach, undertaking research and development integrating art and interdisciplinary creative processes into the conception of site-specific, solution-based public art interventions, which are also intended to function as innovative renewable energy power plants. The project arose out of a shared interest amongst the collaborators - BIGG, Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life/Velocity, Land Art Generator Initiative, Scottish Canals as well as Creative Carbon Scotland and ecoartscotland (Chris Fremantle from Robert Gordon University) - in the potential for creative practice to address renewable energy as a social and cultural as well as built environment issue and energy policy issue.
