Create your own energy

Imagine if we could trap the energy from an orchestra;
the friction and vibrations caused between a bow and the strings
stored and sold back to the national grid. That technology could be
applied to so many delightful activities, and we could have a society
that feeds back the energy that we need to power our day to day lives,
helping to contribute to a greater balance, whether doing a
jig, or the Tour de France.
-Alice Gabb
I adore the work of Alice Gabb. Her playful illustrations remind me of days when all I would do is stare and sketch. Unfortunately I have found myself loosing the art and only working on my computer, but it is nice to know that nothing can compare to the "hand" and Gabb demonstrates that beautifully.
