Cyclists video tunnel in Büyükada
As a result of the non-motor vehicle transportation rule, the inhabitants and the visitors of Büyükada are frequently using bicycles. The main options for transportation are phaeton(works like a cab, not really cheap), walking(if it is walking distance) and bicycle(cheap, accesible, perfect for daily transportation and stroll around). The bike route of the island is an important attraction for the visitors. Most of the daily visitors rent a bicycle for an affordable price and ride whereever they want. “Splash” is a tunnel connected to the bike route and located on the sea. It contains more than 50 led screens which show videos made by willing directors or artists. The screens have a custom size, 45×160 cm, so the videos will made special for Splash. The screens will placed consecutively with an angle for a more comfortable visual angle. It works like a “flip book” but the moving elements are not the scenes, they are the cyclists. The bicycle road of Splash placed under 3-4 mm under the water level to decrease the speed of the cyclists and stabilise a common speed(1,5-2 m/s) which is necessary for following the scenes. Splash has a basic steel construction which supported with steel cables. To minimize the waves(sea) inside/over the bike road, the exterior covering of the system last nearly 1m under water level. It is not a perfect precaution but it will decrease the wave motion inside the volume.
