Kinetic Crested Cockatoo:
Human Powered Art in Unexpected Places

Catch a glimpse of this magnificently oversized cockatoo as it cycles throughout the City this March. A cockatoo for two, this kinetic sculpture is a two-person, pedal-powered bird bike built from recycled materials by emerging artists Travis Bullock and Constance Titterton. Gaze up into its inquisitive eyes, inspect the hidden feathers of the tail and take a look at the mechanics inside the iridescent body as this cockatoo takes flight in Canberra's Civic, Braddon, and Acton districts. Enjoy Cosmo's iridescence illuminated at night as part of Enlighten's events around the projections on the Sydney and Melbourne buildings!

This project was supported by the ACT Government under the City Renewal Authority's City Grants program and theCity of Sydney through their Creative Fellowships Fund.
