Michel de Broin

Shared Propulsion Car - Hell's Kitchen

The video shows an intervention in New York traffic: the motor and transmission of a 1986 Buick Regal were replaced by a mechanical system of four pairs of pedals, allowing the passengers to power the car with their own legs at a top velocity of 15 km/h. Shared Propulsion Car ironically comments on subjects like the scarcity of petroleum and alternative fuels. De Broin often works with everyday objects that he has manipulated in absurd ways.
