Riding a bicycle as an art tool. Living as a poetical act.
First: moving images around you - plus the sun and the wind.
Later: moving images trapped in a DVD.
A video being imagined while it is made.
Video not as memory but as reinvention.
Cycles for wandering is a project that mixes a pleasurable bike ride, real-time image manipulation, locative media and user participation to create a short experimental video. To create a video a participant simply takes a five to ten minute bike ride. The bike is equipped with a GPS and video camera that records images and movements of the rider’s trip. A computer, mounted on the bike, uses the information gathered from the GPS to make decisions on how to manipulate the images taken by the camera. When the rider returns from the trip a DVD of the video made is created for them.
