Designer Marjan van Aubel, in collaboration with Lexus and Random Studio, created a unique installation at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami for Miami art week.

Named “8 Minutes and 20 Seconds,” the installation uses colorful, illuminated photovoltaic sheets to generate power for an audio-visual display. These sheets, made of translucent polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic and integrated with organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells, are designed to resemble a Lexus electric car model. The installation aims to showcase the integration of photovoltaic materials in art, storing solar energy in a battery for ambient car sounds and music. Although not fully self-powered, the installation, which transforms in color from day to night, highlights the potential of solar technology in design.
