THE PEDAL POWERED LETTER WRITING INSTALLATION
A performer-pedaled bicycle powers three separate antique library reading room overhead lamps. Beneath the lamps is a writing desk and card catalog dressed in fresh sod, florals, and moss. Guests can approach the desk, sit and listen to headphones featuring a dynamic natural sound design, and use an antique typewriter to write themselves a letter reflecting a variety of customizable prompts (resolutions, birthday wishes, etc.). The letters are then mailed at a later date to the author’s home; a poignant, interactive and ephemeral reminder of the event.
