We built and installed the above pedal-powered ‘leave no trace’ sigh for the Big Chill Festival. Three bicycles powered the sign from the other side of a lake. What was amazing was that people had no idea what the Bicycles were for until they started pedalling. Using the Bicycle generators in this way really bought the ‘leave no trace’ sign to life and allowing festival goes to make their own art! Here are some more pictures of a sign built for a local community event.
This was our third year installing pedal powered art at The Big Chill so we really wanted to go all out and create something unusual. So inspired by William Blake’s ‘Vision of Angels’ we hung white dresses in an old tree, each dress contained a low voltage bulb connected to the Bicycle generators. It looked really macabre and worked well with the Big Chill’s Zombie Theme.
