ABOUT

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. It's a soothing experience.

MECHANICS

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 stops pedaling, the lights turn off.
