“Like the statues of Easter Island, it is envisioned that these 150-foot-tall modern caryatids will take on a quiet authority, belonging to their landscape yet serving the people, silently transporting electricity across all terrain, day and night, sunshine or snow.”

The american architects Choi + Shine have inspired by the artworks of the artist Elena Paroucheva, and still have plagiarize her ideas. She works in the field of the visual impact of overhead networks: power lines, wind energy sculptures, mobil phone antennas ... for over 10 years.

Elena's pylons – sculptures are beautiful ladies, birds, flowers, cathedrals ... according to the landscape of the country. See: http://www.art-elena.com/

Elena Paroucheva inaugurated in 2004 a unique artwork: "Source" - four pylons of a high voltage power line are dressed in colorful dresses, through a tourist and thermal sity visited by 5 million tourists a year. On September every year during the European Heritage Days , the artist is present for a guided tour. Visit to Amnéville les Thermes, France and see the website http://www.electric-art.eu/ .
