Exciting news!! The Staff at Arts Qld have chosen this image from the 2010 Recycled Bike Lantern Project as one of their main RADF branding images. The Giant Fish Bike Lanterns were made for the 2010 River Rock to Mountain Top Community Festival Lantern Parade. The project was funded by the Mackay RADF program and was a partnership project with ‘Chanses R‘ recycling plant, Five Star Power and Art and Circus students from Mirani State High School . It was a collaborative project and was jointly design and created by Me, visual artists Tracey Johnson and Rosemary Payne and circus performer Tammy Stone. The frames are made from 6 recycled bike frames and the lanterns are powered by 2 solar panels and a Pedal powered dynamo. The fantastic photo was taken by Tracey Johnson
