Cathexispin is an interactive art installation featuring 4 specially built electricity-generating unicycles. The unicycles were used to power turntables, the Ice Queen, devices audience members wished to plug in, lights, and the playback of a musical composition. Just imagine how much energy could be produced if every stationary bike was hooked up to the grid!!
Cathexispin was exhibited at Intervene! Interrupt! Rethinking Art as Social Practice in Santa Cruz and the San Jose 01 Festival, April-June, 2008.
