Light-Powering Playground Installations
Swing by Moradavaga Harnesses Kinetic Energy

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Nov 29, 12

Art installations revolving around the harnessing of kinetic energy may be old news, but Swing by Moradavaga, a design collection based in Porto and Berlin, has revived it in a playful way. As its title gives away, it is a swing set that generates power with every pump. This power is fed into a system of lights to illuminate the area at night. A playful and interactive installation, Swing by Moradavaga also provides a sense of gratification in regards to activity and environmental awareness.

Created for the Pop Up Culture program promoted by Guimarães 2012 – European Capital of Culture, Swing by Moradavaga was built outside of the International Centre for the Arts Jose de Guimarães. Each swing is attached to a bicycle chain that turns a wheel to power the lights.
