I was looking for opportunities to generate energy through activities we naturally do. The final result is a rocking chair that enables the user to experience production and consumption of electricity in a gentle and rewarding way. An abstract process becomes tangible and eventually cultivates natural awareness. Advanced
nano-dynamo technology and more efficient light sources such as the newly developed OLED generation makes it possible to build a rocking chair that generates electricity from the rocking motion. During daylight
the energy gets stored in a battery pack in the back connection of the two skids.
