The Wheels of Industry is a development of Stained Glass Cars originally commissioned by Artichoke for Lumiere Durham 2013. The stained glass windows are illuminated by visitors using a kinetic bicycle to generate electricity inviting reflection on the world’s historic reliance on non-sustainable sources of energy. 

The images captured in one of the cars brings the industrial heritage of the North to Oxford with a journey from deep in the coal mine to the iconic Angel of the North whilst another depicts British iconography from Amy Winehouse and Sid Vicious to HRH Queen Elizabeth and Prince George.
