LightbattleÂ Â is a unique interactive bicycle light-artwork designed by VENIVIDIMULTIPLEX that lets visitors experience place in a unique wonderful and joyful way. The high-end arch of light determines the strongest cyclists. Take a seat and let the battle commence!
The installation consists of a lightweight arch that elegantly spans over a pathway or even a river. Attached to the arch are nearly five thousand LED lights that are individually triggered by state-of-the-art computer systems. Underneath both sides of the arch stand five bicycles from which the energy of speed is being regenerated for a light challenge not seen before.
With a beautiful light spectacle, Lightbattle attracts spectators to take place on a bicycle and unleash the epic challenge for red and blue. While pedalling they push their own arch of light to the other side to try and out cycle their opponents. The winner will be overwhelmed with a dazzling waterfall of lights. The energy and enjoyment of the visitors turn the Lightbattle into a stunning light event and fun for all. As in all of our work, we are involving the audience to convey a small message in a fun and interactive way.
