Your Bike Is Back from the Repair Shop

Don't think of this as a means of transportation, but a work of art. At least, that's probably what Victor Sonna has in mind for his series of bikes built out of scavenged parts. He writes:

I draw lines throughout the city while riding my bicycle. These lines are neither straight nor angular. Likewise, people move in unique ways, both physically and mentally. The movement itself, that meandering line, is often not a smooth ride at all. We are increasingly inclined to trim down damages, holes and obstacles in our lives By contrast, it is my intention to leave these ‘faults’ or ‘failures’ in my work, both structurally and formally. The above mentioned works are odes to the founding fathers of modern art, with all their distorting, meandering, brilliant concoctions. No smooth rides for them either Riding a bike turns Man into an optimist.He has to provide his own traction
