As we touch the switcher we see the light. Such simple mechanic interactions are a big part of our daily choreography. «Pop up power» is an attempt to bring awareness back to our routine movements which must be reinterpreted if we want to head towards nature preservation and sustainability. Visitors will be invited to spin the bicycle wheel which will result in lighting up an LED panel. When one applies a noticeable physical force, it causes a multistep and yet simple reaction, making the wheel spin turns the lights on, thus illuminating the importance of being conscious about every completed action.
