‘Bike Cycles: A Tour of Bicycle Design History 1825-2000’
We created an installation of bicycles – from posters, to early 19th century bicyles, through to prototypes from the Shimano design competition. A velodrome ran around the perimeter of the gallery supporting all the bicycles, with figurative posters surrounding the arena like a cheering crowd. The panels of the velodrome were painted in graded shades of grey with similarly graded lighting. This created a feeling of momentum, while a blue wash of light on the gallery walls allowed the installation to float in undefined space.
