Vivid - Re-CYCLE! by CLOUSTON Associates
Get on and take a ride. Re-CYCLE! is an interactive and fun light art installation that harnesses the power of human energy to illustrate how we could all do much more to reduce our consumption of electricity. Jump on the bicycles, built with recycled materials and modified with washing machine motors, and pedal away to power the rings of low energy LED lights circling the Palm Grove.
CLOUSTON Associates are landscape architects and urban designers with over 30 years’ experience of creative public realm design and public art installations. They developed Re-CYCLE! with technical advice from Peter MacLean of Lighting Art + Science and using bicycles built by sustainability and renewable energy researchers at the University of Western Australia. The installation was first presented in Vivid Sydney 2009 as CYCLE! and invited back by popular demand.
