This blog serves to cover Team Alfred during the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar Decathlon 2015, as well as my experiences as the teams sole artist and designer.
Here is a Great Introduction Video to the Solar Decathlon!
My contribution to This Competition:
I am the teams lead artist and sole designer who has the opportunity of attending the decathlon in California as a decathlete. During my last semester as a student at Alfred University I was commissioned to create the Team Alfred Logo. As an alumnus I designed the t-shirts, handouts and posters. After all of my hard work we discovered that I in fact could become a decathlete since I have graduated within 1 year of the competition. As a decathlete my efforts with this competition, besides the commissioned design work, was to decorate the home with my works of art. Both the art and design are implemented to support and compliment the engineers, architects and construction students of Alfred State College and Alfred University while they put their solar home to the test against the other competing institutions across the nation.
I have also taken it upon myself to compile my experiences into this blog as I follow the daily progress of the Solar Decathlon competition. I hope some of you will follow and share my experiences as they unfold.
