The Energy Generated from A Single Orange: A Citric Acid Battery by Caleb Charland

http://calebcharland.com/

http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/11/the-energy-generated-from-a-single-orange/

This orange battery was built by photographer Caleb Charland as part of his ongoing alternative energy photographs using fruit, vegetables, and other objects to create light for his long-exposure photographs. The electricity powering the lightbulb inside the orange is generated through a chemical reaction between citric acid and the zinc nails inserted into each wedge. I think this is by far the most lovely piece he’s done in the series, but before you start work on a bunch of orange lights to keep on the nightstand, the light generated was so dim this particular photograph required a 14 hour exposure

There is a lot of activity behind the scenes around my next project. This post is the first attempt to establish a context that will help explain where I'm heading with it. And yes, it feels good to be blogging again.

Like? I shot this video as part of the PEN READY promotion from Olympus. Already fascinated by the fact that the filters can be applied to HD video in realtime. No drama.

I guess the day when we can create a 3D slideshow of all the photos taken during a trip as little vignettes anchored on this kind of visualization. Super cool for roadtrips.
