Lisa Cheung: Velo-Rel-La


Velo-Rel-La, created by artist Lisa Cheung was a mobile music station powered by a bicycle. The Velo-Rel-La unit travelled around the town of Loughborough to community centres, the University and a variety of other locations playing music chosen by passers-by.

Velo-Rel-La enabled a broad spectrum of people to participate. It acted as the music system for parties, festivals, and other social events, where individuals have been invited to select a record or play their own  music from an IPod. Energetic volunteers cycled the music station to its next destination, as well as pedalling to produce the electricity to power the CD players, turn-table and speakers at each event.

Velo-Rel-La refers to Cinderella's pumpkin carriage where the white stallions become four cyclists. It used the green technology of bicycle-power to generate the electricity needed. It also referred to the past, using simple technologies of wind-up power of gramophones and music boxes.

Velo-Rel-La has been developed with the assistance of Sammy Delgrado Escabor.

Lisa Cheung is interested in art as a social space, taking as her inspiration everyday life and people.  Her practice encompasses communal dinners, lighting installations, limited edition chinaware, mobile kitchens and performances.
