Prototype IV, bicycle photosynthesis – Lucien Anderson

The night-time environment of Sanctuary becomes a test site. Using basic materials, everyday objects and adaptations of previous prototypes, Lucien Anderson has assembled a structure capable of sustaining plant life in an environment enveloped in darkness, powered entirely by your legs.

Lucien Anderson is an artist based in the North East, his work references the rudimentary methods of field testing adopted by space agencies. So called “analogue test sites” prototype cutting edge technologies which are by nature lo-fi, employing everyday materials and methods to explore the possibility of inhabiting other planets.
