The Wheels of Industry – ilight Marina Bay, Singapore
Client: iLight Marina Bay 2014
Commissioned by Asia’s only sustainable light art festival, iLight Marina Bay Singapore, to realise the piece ‘The Wheels of Industry’. An unexpected fusion of a matt black three-wheeled Reliant Robin with colourful stained glass panels reworked from the vehicle’s original windows which 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 practices.
