The bicycle transforms the kinetic energy produced by the cyclist into smoke. The cyclist’s will to power is a source of renewable energy, recycled by a generator that transforms physical effort into enough electric current to activate a smoke machine. This work is the result of the marriage of two machines: one produces while the other consumes. This “copulation” between machines generates smoke, which escapes freely into the atmosphere.
