Deep Cycle
Presented by free103point9
Events occurred on June 12 and 13, 2010 in Hudson Valley, NY.

Harpo Foundation funding was used to further customize the artist’s retrofitted emergency vehicle called Mobile 49 with solar and video surveillance equipment. Mobile 49 was then used as a mobile device for radio transmission and video collection during Deep Cycle, a series of programming that included performances, readings, interviews and incidents by several artists, writers, designers and theorists addressing the subject of a “post-oil” landscape.

During transit, the Deep Cycle program was presented as an online radio stream and documented through the video capture and photography. The vehicle was part of the annual Hudson Flag Day Parade. A motorcade participant, various performative elements were presented. It then proceeded along a predetermined route with the presented program tying together themes like consumption, waste, destruction and transformation (Source: free103point9 final report).
