Unicycle

Keeping the theme of travel in my work, I returned to using a broader range of recycled materials. It wasn’t practical to show a large installation as part of the group show ‘Inhospitable’ at The Bridewell, Liverpool, especially as the exhibition was touring to Leeds. The work had to travel well and be easy enough for  someone else to install it there.  I used antlers, given to me during the exhibition at Tromso and a donated bicycle wheel, adding  ‘tyres’ made from metro newspapers picked up on my daily commute to work.

Although originally I’d made a pole from a branch to connect the ‘handle bars’ with the wheel, I found that it looked better without. The unicycle became more of a vehicle that was impossible to ride.
