Bicycles Built Based on People’s Attempts to Draw Them From Memory

 

We were delighted when we saw this on booooooom.com. Italian designer and conceptual artist Gianluca Gimini made “realistic” 3D renderings of people’s flawed mental images of what a bike looks like. We’re considering it here as a possible example of metamodernism in that the project celebrates the “truth” of people’s inner experience, in juxtaposition with “factual” external reality.

(It may seem as if we are obsessed with bikes, given this and our earlier post using using bicycles as a means of explaining the epistemic breakdown/trajectory of traditional, modern, pomo and metamodern. We’re not really any more into bikes than anybody else, but they do seem to be a resonant cultural touchstone.)
