Container series

Marcus McShane

Nag is a bicycle-powered studio entirely built out of found and recycled objects. A series of invited artists must pedal as they work, and the more power they require for their work, the harder they need to pedal. They’ll power laptops, printers, wifi, lighting, a record player, and a sound system, as well as anything else that the artists need and have the stamina to run. Nag has been a DJ booth, a writing retreat, a Manhattan recording studio for The Clean and, and of course, an art and animation studio. It’s both recycling taken to a kind of risky level and a demonstration of how little energy the human body can actually produce. Nag premiered in Wellington in 2009, caught fire during it’s initial season, and has been rebuilt several times and toured the world across 28 varied installations since then.
