solar vintage, we will become silhouettes

vintage fan with solar panels

by Elena Corchero. A collection of accessories for the eco-fashion-minded in which technology meets tradition. Explores delicate ways of incorporating organic solar cells and other electronic components into textiles. Embroideries and prints recall endangered birds. The pieces are charged while used outdoors during the day. In the evening they transform into a decorative ambient light display for the home. From Siggraph, Unravel, 2007.
