HEUREKA! is an interactive art installation piece which works by manually spinning a set of bicycle wheels to illuminate the kaleidoscopic space above. the structure consists of a white box placed at an angle against the wall, a set of bicycle components connected below and a small block situated on the floor. the user must kneel underneath with their head inside the space while turning the wheels to activate the lighting system.

the project which was conceived by architects moradavaga, was constructed as a ‘thinking’ space, allowing participants to marvel at the geometric shapes within. the main structure is made out of folded white and polished metal sheets, kinetic energy is then released through the active participation of the individual which projects a distorted and fragmented perspective.
