Our Cycle powered Christmas Trees are a perfect engagement activity for the festive season. They can be setup in any location and can be designed to be left unsupervised in a public area.
They are an amazing way to bring an interactive aspect to Christmas. The public are encouraged to interact with the installation by either pedalling adult bicycles or even smaller bicycles for children. We can also include hand cranks that can be used by both really small children and people in wheel chairs.
The most recent Christmas Tree at the Southbank Centre used to energy from the bicycles and hand cranks to blow snow all around the tree creating a snow globe effect. The tree also partially lit by the bicycles and one hand crank powered seasonal poems through speakers places all round the base of the tree.
We work with with the amazing team at Vivid Design Works to make this happen.
Cycle powered Christmas Trees have been described as a “spirited, thought-provoking response to the season of contemplation and highlight global concerns about energy and waste and encourages a “hands-on approach to art”.
