Tulip Mania

Tulip Mania!
 – a work by
 Eibert Draisma and Aoife Wullur 
involves a more rudimentary form of technology
(bicycle pumps on the bridge connected to pipes that run into the water)
yet strongly highlights the theme of this year’s event:
a celebration of the city of Amsterdam and its people.
It requires physical effort to actually work;
 pedestrians must unite to operate the series of bike pumps
 that send illuminated tulips to the water’s surface.
 The more people get involved, the more light comes into the city.
runs from 27 November until 18 January 2015
