Concept and Technical designer for NVA’s Ghost Peloton for the Grand Depart of the Tour de France.  For the Grand Depart of the Tour de France I was given the challenge to design and produce a lighting system that could attach to road racing bikes, be controlled remote, work in all weathers and at high speed. A major part of the work was studying the motion of the wheel and how we could express the speed and movement of a Peloton of cyclists travelling at speed at night. The project was a mass choreographed event that took place in the center of Leeds and also a film that has gone on to win numerous awards by the film director Mark Huskisson.  photo credit © Tim Smith
