BODY POWERS MOTOR POWERS ALTAR POWERS SOUL
Soul Cycle is a self-powered personal altar space of 42 electric candles. The candles are dynamically wired at different thresholds, resulting in waves and flickers of light. The biker listens to Aphex Twin. It's a soothing experience.
Pedaling spins a motor that produces 5-10 volts. This powers a circuit of 42 electric candles housed in a wooden altar that I constructed around the bike's front basket. When the biker pedals harder, the lights burn brighter. When the biker stops pedaling, the lights turn off.
