David Hockney

A favorite photomontage! Used to ride the Pearblossom highway on my way to Colorado or points beyond on my bike trips. Remember taking a "Hockney" inspired montage on the same highway, gotta dig it up and post it!

The Big Wheel (1979 ) - Chris Burden

I took this video of the Big Wheel back in january at the MOCA. It's a Kinetic sculpture by Chris Burden (That's not him in the video). It's a giant wheel driven by an old Montgomery Wards "Riverside" motorcycle you could purchase out of a catalog. The wheel turns on it's own for about two and a half hours! Ran into the guy on the bike at the MOCA months later, turns out he's a douchebag...
