The history of how ALL Power Labs came to be is an interesting tale, which some of you may know, and at some point we should sit down and write about it. Part of that history is how we grew out of an arts facility, The Shipyard, a collaborative art/build space for large scale mechanical, kinetic and electronic art. So we were rather excited when we ran into the artist Jessica Segall’s installation work.
A Selfless, REteaching Jet, 2010” is a wood-fueled film projector, composed of a downdraft gasifier, Fairbank Z stationary engine, alternator, marine battery, inverter and 16m film projector. Jessica based her design Primarily on the FEMA design, but the cyclone she looked to APL for inspiration. Jessica is quite an interesting and talented artist we look forward to what she creates next.
