Materials: SRAM parts, topographic maps, tissue paper, small cradled panels, canvas boards
Dimensions: 18" w x 2" d x 24" h
Statement: The sculptural beauty, symmetry, and simplicity of the bike parts inspired me to keep them unaltered and to build relationships between their shapes and colors. To highlight the bike parts, I purposely made the background monochromatic but created varying physical levels to interact with the different heights of the parts, and allow for implied movement relative to one another. The varying levels are also meant to echo the contours or elevations found on the topographic maps. The topo maps, together with the tire "tracks," link the use of bikes to the land and the terrain they can traverse.
