cyclescape

Scrolling the landscape with an indoor bike.

Recycled indoor cycle, hacked dynamo, arduino and custom electronics, old PC running a pure data patch.

An indoor cycle is perched in front of a projected video screen, whose wheel rotation controls an interactive video. When the rider is cycling, the landscape is scrolling at an exagerated speed. When driving slowly or at rest, the screen displays abstract moving images from the limbos.

Cyclescape was made for “Vanité #10 : Visible Invisible” by Luis Pasina & co, during Nuit Blanche 2008, Paris.
