THE RED BULL
THE RED BULL
“ I began by thinking of human connections. I then tried to take the idea of human technology and how human interconnected activities can actually become energy stations and I truly believe this is do-able “
Cristian-Alexandru’s original idea, ‘We All Share The Same Dreams, But’, envisioned a future built on equality, where people’s feelings are directly transferrable to energy. Developing his vision throughout the four-day academy, he focused his final pitch on the topic of ‘Human Emotions as a New Renewable Energy Source’, exploring his idea further and how it could create a desirable future for humanity.
The idea was selected to be made into a Red Bull Media House production due to the imagination behind his concept for the future which depicts a paradigm shift in how we, as humans, see ourselves.
Ultimately, it communicates the fact that there is no greater resource for our planet than what’s already on it.
