Where Art and Science meet
Compáz is a collective of scientific and artistic skills, an incubator of ideas that seeks to create, produce and promote projects that will assist social progress. The projects of Compáz are spaces designed to allow for questioning big ideas about society. They are spaces that allow for a growth in consciousness, a different way of looking and conceiving of the world.
The collective is now involved in several projects initiated by the European Commission, such as Be-Smart or Hiperion, which aim to facilitate the energy transition through innovative technologies.
More broadly, the vocation of Compaz is to demonstrate the value and usefulness of new technologies through artistic works, collaborating with institutions worldwide.
Just below, a few demonstrations of some of the projects Compáz has been involved in, such as Photo-Synthesis (exhibited here at Hiflow Geneva, a place of convergence and experimentation, which brings together actors of change, experts, artists and industrialists to question and invent tomorrow’s world). Photo-Synthesis is an artwork powered by the sun, figuratively and literally. The top layer; “the art”; is a representation of plants, nature’s undisputed masters of photosynthesis: the process of converting light energy into chemical energy. Alternatively, solar panels; the artwork’s substratum or canvas; demonstrates man’s answer to plants’ ability to harness the power of the sun. Not by storing it as sugars, but by converting it into electricity.
One of our big projects of the moment, as communication coordinator, is Be-Smart which aims to significantly contribute to the implementation of a stronger European industrial sector in the field of solar energy and demonstrate new cost-effective BIPV product concepts with high quality architectural design: EPoG (Energy Positive Glazing). Magasin X in Uppsala, Sweden (illustrated here), will be the first demonstrator to be built and will be finished in Spring 2021.
