Amsterdam architects Joost van Bergen, Dirk Schlebusch and Onne Walsmit of architecture and design firm Venividimultiplex recently created an interactive light installation called Lightbattle in the Netherlands. The installation was created for the 2013 Amsterdam Light Festival that illuminates a passage way at the Rijksmuseum.
The interactive bicycle and light art piece consists of over 5,000 fluorescent tubes that light up the archway of a bicycle lane. Each side is installed with five bicycles and pedestrians are pitted against each other and are invited to pedal the red and blue lights from one side of the illuminated arch to the other. As the passersby pedal, light is generated that creates a beautiful luminescent glow.
The art piece is open to everyone and will be available from now until January 19th.
