Bicycle Wheel | 2012 | mixed | wheel:27”x27”x6”

Bicycle Wheel, is a bicycle wheel constructed out of painting materials - canvas (tire), wooden stretcher (rim), hanging hooks and wire (spokes) - to the same outside dimensions as the front wheel of the bicycle that it is installed on. It is both an object and a video documentation of a performance. The piece was completed by riding this hand-built wheel through the Saskatchewan landscape until the tire punctured and the spokes began to break. This took approximately eight kilometers of riding over the course of two rides.
