Blushers

On the roof of an elevator and entrance to a bicycle storage I found these two creatures in front of the Public Library in Amsterdam.

From above I had a better view. On their back they have Solar cells. With that energy  their body and eyes lighten up in the evening when someone uses the bicycle storage to give them a warm welcome.

It is a design by Marjet Wessels Boer from 2012 and she named them "ODE's blozers".
ODE stands for" Oosterdokseiland" the place of the art. Blozers means "blushers"
It was the result of a contest issued by the municipality of Amsterdam to design an art project that provided itself with energy.

On internet I found a photo in the evening when they are blushing.

  2. Oh they are too cool Marianne, what a brilliant idea with the solar panels. I bet they are quite an attraction, I can just see everyone looking up, and then others looking up to see what they're looking at ��

  5. Vaude... they looks nice. Interesting place to put the art. Maybe many people doesn't see them, if they don't look up.
