The city of Santa Rosa unveiled a new piece of public art … an obelisk made out of recycled bicycles that stands 60 feet tall.. called Cyclisk. Get it? Cyclist + Obelisk = cyclisk. Uh huh.
To quote the artist, the art is to be “Made of recycled bicycle gears, rims, frames and hoops, [Cyclisk] will be a series of intersecting rhythms â€“ a visual metaphor for the human experience â€“ technology and the humanities â€“ history and the future â€“ individual and collective. Evoking a â€˜world of possibilities,â€™ it will be a work communicating to all walks of life â€“ all ages, relevant for years to come….â€
Hmmm. Uh huh.
What do you think? Cool or lame?
