In a dream-combination of sustainability and mobility, Brooklyn based artist Kevin Cyr has taken the idea of a mobile home to a new level. He has created two concept designs that swap gasoline fueled vehicles with human power as the force that propels movable living structures.

His Camper Kart examines habitats and housing; recycling and ecology; exploration and mobility by fusing a pop-up camper with a shopping cart. And the Camper Bike, which is actually a functioning sculptural piece, continues this idea by taking an in-bed truck trailer and putting it on top of a serious looking 3 wheeled bicycle.

While neither one of these inventions may be practical for most people, they do show off some interesting possible living alternatives.

If you want to see Cyr’s work in person, he has an upcoming show in Provincetown, MA, which opens this Friday.
