the wheels of industry

 

The Wheels of Industry is a development of Stained Glass Cars originally commissioned by Artichoke for Lumiere Durham 2013. The stained glass windows are illuminated by visitors using a kinetic bicycle to generate electricity.

A wholly interactive piece which invites visitors to play at being the source of power whilst raising questions of sustainability and whether our historic over-reliance on non-renewable energy can and should be replaced by innovative and sustainable transport practices.

The piece has been shown at ilight Marina Bay Singapore 2014  illuminating York 2014 and Lumiere Durham 2015
