Ivan Henriques is a transdisciplinary artist and researcher who makes multimedia installations. He explores hybrids of nature and (technological) culture and creates new forms of interaction between humans and other living organisms.
Waterbike is a ‘bio-machine’ specially designed as an ecosystem for bacteria to feed on organic materials found in water, one of the leading causes of water pollution.
Besides offering a leisurely activity, Henriques’ hydraulic system cleans water by harnessing the energy generated by the rider.
