THE COMMITTEE OF SLEEP

energy scavenging system

The Committee of Sleep makes use of the principle of ‘energy scavenging,’ which means the capturing of surplus energy from living organisms. The expansive installation, which is based on structural elements made of paper, is equipped with organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), a newly developed lighting technology. The objects absorb energy released by the movement of visitors in the exhibition room and transmit it to the light diodes. The lighting situation thus varies with the frequency of visitors in the exhibition.
