Kinetic sculpture connects bike pedals to sound creation


San Francisco based artist Bernie Lubell’s wood sculptures are some of the most inspirational kinetic art pieces around. His latest, “A Little Breathing Room” (2007), connects a custom built wooden bicycle to a large wood blower that causes a latex wall to “breathe”. The air also produces a tone in a 10′ wood organ pipe. It also allows for a second person to effect the tone theough interacting with the latex sheet. Really nice example of a collaborative instrument that can double as a fitness machine.
