To continue an individual’s memory beyond their life, we build monuments and tombs. By shrouding these dead bicycles, we show our appreciation and love for bicycles and hope that they’ll get their second life.
Within the city limits you will occasionally find a bicycle, locked to a pole or tree, stripped of its valuable pieces and left to rust. Even without these components, the bicycle still has value and could be saved for a minimal cost.
What does this say about our respect for a machine we spend so much time enjoying? Does the loss of a lock key merit the abandonment of the entire bike?
The intent of this project is to bring a renewed appreciation for bicycle culture and awareness to a community willing to leave their friends behind.
