"Using vaudevillian hand-made sets and props, this window display humorously emphasizes the power of individual creativity and energy. By depicting a city run by bicycle power, the artists suggest that Chicago could increase quality of life through harnessing existing energy sources. As a result the city and its buildings could save energy, elevate physical well-being, decrease pollution, and create a sense of interconnection among its citizens. The window display prompts citizens to envision other problems being solved with simple solutions."
