Bike Art Salon Wed The 27th

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 20

Got this in the email, looks awesome!

March 2013 Salon: The Intersection of Bikes and Art

Event Date:
Wednesday, March 27 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

What do you get when bicycles and art cross paths?

Skunk, Against the Grind, and Bikeyface will lead us on a wheeling adventure that intersects comics, robots, road culture, documentary filmmaking, lasers, blogging, choppers and more.

About the Speakers

SCUL-ture and Sculpture
Skunk speaks of SCUL: bicycle chopper gang, and Skunkadelia: art made from upcycled bike parts. Skunk has been transmogrifying trash-picked bikes since 1996. The awe-inspiring chopper Cloudbuster will be on hand for show and tell.

Against The Grind
Rachel Wiederhoeft and Jessica Barnthouse Against The Grind will discuss documentary filmmaking while living on bikes. How do you find a film subject in the middle of nowhere? How much film production equipment can you reasonably bring on a bike tour? When do you film and when do you just let the experiences happen? Questions like these will be covered; along with clips from our documentary series they produced while pedaling 3,500 miles across the United States.

Bikeyface
Bikeyface is a hilarious, and sometimes irreverent, web comic about biking in the city. Bekka Wright will talk about how she uses her cartoons to entertain, educate, and raise the profile of biking for normal transportation.

Detroit Dreamcyclers Hit Detroit Auto Show

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 26

19 art students walking around an auto show with imaginary bikes. I really liked this video, mostly because I think a lot about how automobiles are marketed to people, and how reality doesn’t match up very well with that marketing (see here and here and here and here and here for examples of my past thoughts on the subject).

The dada like absurdity of the imaginary bikes highlights the absurdity of Detroit continuing to put its eggs in the automobile industry basket. Plus it looked like fun.
