Friday Bench: Sit down and recharge

Sitting down to recharge your batteries has taken on a whole new meaning in Bristol’s Millennium Square, thanks to an art installation called The Energy Tree.

The solar panels store energy which is fed through those pipes you can see above the bench. These allow visitors to sit down, relax, and recharge the batteries in their mobile phones.

Friday Bench: Millennium Square

Can you see my avatar peeping out from the @Bristol building?

On July 9th we were gathered around this bench prior to busking on the stage you see in the distance at Sing For Water West 2011. Our set comprised The Bear Necessities, Caravan of Love and Bring Me Sunshine. The latter did the trick because the sun did indeed arrive after a miserable morning of singing in the rain.
