If you happened to be glancing out of your window as Michael Flückiger rode past on his bike you might be in for a bit of a shock – the Swiss graphic designer has modified it to project the shadow of an elephant.
Flückiger created what he calls his shadowmodification project with a speedometer, a projector, a car battery, and an iPad mini attached to his bike and the clever use of some openFameworks software.
The shadow images created by the device vary depending on the speed Flückiger pedals – at one point in the video he picks up speed and the elephant goes from a walk to a marauding gallop.
