Photographer's Note

Ai Weiwei抯 towering, geometric Forever Bicycles installation is made from nearly 2,000 stainless steel bicycles arranged into hypnotic forms that loom over viewers and passersby. Although the bikes are stationary, their arrangement gives the impression that they抮e constantly in motion. Using bicycles as a building medium has particular poignancy: bikes are symbols of freedom and movement, and being trapped in stasis like this is a strong commentary on aspects of life in China抯 city centers, such as employment in mass production warehouses, the frequency of traffic jams, and the absence of many personal freedoms.

The picture was taken from far away on a Vaporeto.
