The CycloCopters are custom-built, light and sound emitting vehicles for urban interventions. Different models of old freight bicycles were modifed and customized towards mobile, opto-acoustic systems that can be used to board and transform public spaces. With this rideable instrumentarium we try to open the cities for audiovisual live-experiments and performances in search of widened associative spheres, expanding our and the participants understanding of the public space and its potential.
The term public space sounds like an unfulfilled promise. Restrictive forces seem to work against what could be a sphere of interaction and free communication for a community and all its inhabitants. We just do not know what the public and its places are capable of, that’s why we want to interact and learn about.
