Human Powered Potential

Sol Design Lab/Bike Zoo (Beth Ferguson and Sachi Decou)
Participants: Up to 10

Pedal power is a special combination of human energy and mechanical device. We will begin by looking at unique designs of human powered vehicles and their applications in urban spaces. Using an adapted tricycle as a framework we will build a human powered winged kinetic sculpture. We will explore themes of biomimicry and the beauty and practicality of nature’s designs. Using a combination of recycled materials, found objects and new materials when appropriate we will create a pedal powered creature for moving within and engaging urban spaces.
