The Lucid Dream Bicycle Laboratory is established as a creative space on the Wellington waterfront, engaging with local artists, schools and collaborators of all ages to build seven bicycle floats for a spectacular series of night bicycle parades. Lucid Dream Bicycle Laboratory is a project developed and curated by the supremely creative Lucid Dream Bike team, a collaboration between Bicycle Junction, Erika Grant, Dan Mikkelson, Kelvin Aris, Gerard Crewdson and Stephen Templer - along with a plethora of artists, performers and musicians.
The Lucid Dream team have engaged local artists, businesses, schools and the public of Wellington for a collaborative adventure in light, sound and movement in the middle of winter - The Bicycle Carnival of Lights and Motion. An extravaganza in bicycle art and performance, D.I.Y bicycle float building, decorating your own as well as parading along the picturesque Wellington waterfront. The Lucid Dream Bike Laboratory has offered a unique experience to the Wellington community. Showing what is possible when you combine an unwavering love of fun with some real ingenuity.
Lucid Dream Bike was an interactive bicycle performance experience, which won “Most Innovative Work” at the 2016 Wellington Fringe Festival. Lucid Dream Bike is a night bike adventure that opened up a whole new means of moving, experiencing, and most importantly interacting with the city landscape in a new way. This Laboratory iteration of the project offers the public a chance to be involved in the creation and presentation of bicycle art and performance. Innovating the communication of positive bicycle safety and benefits of bicycle use through art, performance, hands on making and FUN!
