Light Bikes

Site-specific interactive light installation, 2013

Nighttime photograph of a woman standing in the middle of a 8 inch high pool. Projected from above is a crazy multi-colored lightshow that covers her eyes in a ray of purple light while the liquid she's standing in (milk, btw) catches the purple, blue, and violet rays that fall around her.

Light Bikes is the first interactive light installation to be done at a bicycle race that interacts with riders as they race Shown in Red Hook, Brooklyn (NY)

Light Bikes was created for the Red Hook Crit—a highly technical, nighttime, fixed gear bicycle race that attracts top talent from all over the world. This installation projects “light lanes” onto the race track that light up as cyclists ride over them.

I was first asked to participate in the Red Hook Crit in 2012 and for that iteration I created Bicycle Race, which is an animated abstraction of a bicycle race. As a follow up, Light Bikes removes all elements of abstraction and puts the art in direct contact with race participants. Instead of the art being about its subject, it’s now an inseparable part of it.

Light Bikes is created with custom software written by the artist in OpenFrameworks. It measures 30’ x 8’.
