An interactive public art project from VJ Suave sees the company’s artist duo Ygor Marotta and Ceci Soloaga create Suaveciclo, a series of stunning audiovisual tricycles that project animated childrens pictures in public spaces and encourage play.

The São Paulo-based artists pack these hefty trikes to the gills with all manner of batteries, laptops, speakers, and high-powered projectors so they can roll through the night with crowds in tow as their animations spring to life against the urban backdrop.

Using the on-board computers, Marotta and Soloaga are able to manipulate the videos in real-time to play certain animations tailored to different environments, creating unpredictable moments between space, audience, and art.
