Véloscope is a kinetic installation that transforms 12 bicycle wheels into a zoetrope like machine. A stationary bicycle is attached to the installation through interconnected bike chains. A user can sit and pedal the bike to power the installation, making the wheels rotate. There are different patterns and shapes placed on the wheels and their rotation creates the illusion of motion by display of the sequence of drawings.
