Potential Generator (2008)

Ellie Harrison - May 2001

Film documenting a kinetic sculpture originally shown as part of my degree show at Nottingham Trent University in 2001.

The extension on the back of the exercise bike was a device designed to give gravitational potential energy to apples. The height of the device was proportional to the energy content of the apple. A similar, proportionally larger device for doughnuts was also designed.
