Not sure yet.. I think the present is interesting...
The idea I have so far is a crank generator that runs the grid. Solar and
wind is cool too since if there is solar or wind then the piece can run
without cranking. But since it's an indoor installation (I think), it will
only run on solar on a schedule... so if it happens to be noon when you're
viewing the piece there will be a solar component. But at 10pm, there will
never be solar... I suppose I could try and get real weather data to it
That's what I've been thinking...
