Solar futures from a future ruin
SOLARIO considers solar energy and ecology in the contested context of Dallas infrastructure and development. How can the sun’s power be harnessed to evolve the US beyond an oil-based economy? How will the new Red political landscape affect the SunBelt’s future?
Produced with New Cities, Future Ruins, a curatorial initiative and convening engaging the Western Sun Belt of the United States, and SMU’s Pollock Gallery.
