Beijing By Bike (2012)

Bejing By Bike examine an assertion from a tourist guide that the culture of Beijing best can be understood through the city’s chaotic traffic. During a residency at Platform China (through OCA) in 2011, I created a task for myself to achieve this insight: Cycling through several busy crossroads repeatedly in a figure of eight pattern. The task was executed at four selected spots, during both day- and nighttime, and filmed with a camera mounted in the basked in front of the bike. The footage was edited into a two-part video work, and supplemented with four drawings, - one for each crossroad.
