Grid off//Lights on ! is an installation by students of the Cooper Union New york presented in Ideas Festival of the New Museum.

In collaboration with Lydia Kallipoliti,a group of engineering, architecture and art students from the Cooper Union  presented an off-grid lighting installation at the East 4th Street Cultural District. The installation was  powered by alternative energy generation techniques including solar cells, bioluminescent pods and an interactive performance that will illuminate the streetscape. A series of illuminated chambers of tonic water and energy drinks will be incorporated in the lighting installation, creating a public nonalcoholic suspended bar providing drinks to visitors. 
This installation is part of FABnyc and CUISD’s SUSTAIN project. 
Supported by the Cooper Union’s Institute for Sustainable design, The Cooper Union’s Feltman Lighting Fund and the Benjamin Menschel Faculty Fellowship.
