Chain Reaction

These pieces are an artistic response to commuting along the Mike Turtur shared path. The active ‘link’ people are made from a scaled up detailed chain link forms referencing bicycle chains and movement. All fixings are hidden internally making them asethetically interesting as objects. They are also interpreted in a 2 dimensional form and applied to the fence along the cyclepath. A series of plaques design around tradition bicyle headstem badges contain cycling related quotes from a diverse range of people including famous cyclists and local community members.┬áThis series of human scale cycling related interventions are a pleasant and engaging surprise as you travers the cycleway.
