Presenting a new use for an obsolete petrol station in a post-fossil fuel world, the installation is designed to encourage visitors to think about energy and how they use it.
‘Thank you for the Sun’ is the contribution by VANTOT (Esther Jongsma & Sam van Gurp), Sander Wassink and Job van den Berg. A spot where people come together to shop and relax, encouraging them to consider what will happen when everything related to energy consumption is redesigned.
A warm and lighted spot, sand, deckchairs and parasols turns Thank You For The Sun in a venue where the public can ‘refuel’ in the chilly autumn without having to head out to Spain. ‘Thank you for the Sun’ is a provocative way of getting people to think about energy consumption.
