|ABOUT AEOLIAN RIDE
WHAT IS AEOLIAN RIDE?
Aeolian Ride, is an international art event where the public becomes inflated sculpture on bicycles, transforming the landscape of each city. The effect is a sort of joy loop: those riding feel the elation of being a child at play, dazzling bystanders who become giddy, returning joy to the riders. Come join the fun!
Anyone can sign up to ride in one of 75 inflatable costumes. The original designs: white bubble, bunny and drop, contrast the chaos of the surrounding street. In 2012, kids costumes made from colorful recycled parachutes blasted off at Rockaway Beach, reflecting the rainbow of the future.
Aeolian Ride is an exploration in making the impossible possible via contagious joy, people power, bicycles as perfect machines and wind energy. Aeolian Ride was created by artist, Jessica Findley, and has been supported by people who love to play. See her work at WWW.SONICRIBBON.COMFLORENCE, ITALY 10.25.14
