‘Sunshine’ Diatom

Xavier Cortada, High Noon diatom series, 2015

Wanting to connect tourists and locals to Florida’s true beauty–nature, Cortada portrayed Florida’s life-giving sun at the Florida Turnpike Turkey Lake Plaza near Orlando. The artist used diatoms to depict the Sunshine State’s sun rays. Diatoms that harness solar power to creating oxygen. We should do the same to generate clean energy.
