Bike-powered LED installation wows at TEDxKC
Ever feel like you’ve got enough energy to light up a room? Well, spinning your wheels on this bike — an art installation by Jessica Laino at TEDxKC in Kansas City, MO — creates a magnetic charge that powers the LED diamond pattern on the floor.
In the artist’s own words:
I created this piece with “impossible” in mind. Human energy is a substantial, impressive and inspiring force. It’s a simple, small and beautiful example of our power and potential as humans. I hope a viewer may take a notion of freedom and inspiration from this piece: the freedom to think and survive, and the inspiration to dream and create.
