Dancer (1915). Gino Severini (Italian, Cubism/Futurism, 1883-1966). Oil on canvas.
One of the leading artists of the Italian Futurist movement, Severini created works that embody the group’s interest in movement and modern technology. In this painting, the gradation of color and the unusual multi-colored planes reinforce the whirling motion of the dancer.
Architecture concept where tall flower-like umbrellas absorb particles found in air pollution and convert them into green energy.
China’s explosive economy has left the world in awe but the country is paying a big price as the “factory of the world” is getting polluted at an alarming speed. Chinese cities are now characterized by an unhealthy hazy weather as the result of large amounts of suspended particles in the air.
The purpose of Project Blue is to transform suspended particles into green energy by creating an enormous upside down cooling tower with a multi-tubular cyclic desulfurization system that produces nitrogen and sulfur. When both elements are combined with the atmospheres surplus of carbon monoxide the result is water coal that would later be transformed methane and used as green energy through a low-pressure reaction called low pressure efficient mathanation – a physical-chemical process to generate methane from a mixture of various gases out of biomass fermentation or thermo-chemical gasification.
