Mark Grieve x Ilana Spector   Cyclisk   Bicycle Obelisk Sculpture

What can you do with 340 bicycles and one tricycle? Ride them till the end of time? Or in Mark Grieve and Ilana Spector’s artistic fashion, build a giant obelisk sculpture, named it the “Cyclisk”, and plop it right next to car dealerships. Despite what the strategic positioning may seem, according to Grieve, this is not a reminder about how riding bicycles is more environmentally friendly than driving. However, this project did receive a hefty funding of $37,000 from Nissan, who is building a $3.7 million car dealership in Santa Rosa, California. And according to Santa Rosa’s “1% for art” law, 1% of any major construction projects will have to be donated towards public art, hence, the Cyclisk. via: http://wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/09/bicycle-obelisk/?pid=209″>Wired Gadget Lab
