PROJECT

LA PRUEBA DE LA BICICLETA

“The Bicycle Trial” is an experimental project that pursues to generate a virtual space of communication in which people all over the world are able to contribute with their own experience: uploading their own homemade videos into an internet page.

The project consists in leaving a bicycle on a street light post, tree, sidewalk, against a wall, at any corner of any city. A video-camera records and calculates the time elapsing between the moment in which a person leaves the bicycle abandoned and the moment in which another person takes that bicycle away, thus allowing us to learn how long does an abandoned bicycle last in that place. Forgery is ruled out: real videos show real robberies.
