the cyclisk


two california based artists, Mark Grieve and Ilana Spector, constructed an incredible tower made entirely out of bicycles.  as an ode to bike culture, the artists used 340 bikes exactly, and one tricycle (for good luck?). the entire structure totals up to 65 ft in height, and over 10,000 pounds.  because it is an obelisk and meant to be an ode to bike culture, the structure is dubbed “cyclisk.”

in Santa Rosa, where Cyclisk is built, there is a law requiring construction projects to donate money 1% of the cost of their work to public art projects.  because Nissan is building a base there, they contributed to Cyclisk!

Grieve and Spector collected all the bicycles from people around the community and they’re placing the sculpture smack in the middle of a bunch of different car dealerships… take that!
