Have you spotted a wooden bike around town?

As part of Resonance-Cambridge, sculptor and poet Alec Finlay has transformed a bike into an artwork.

Alec refers to these works as living sculptures, the wooden ‘sandwich bike’ displays a poem by Alec on its side. As the rider goes around Cambridge the wider community and visitors to Cambridge have an opportunity to experience the artwork commissioned through the Resonance-Cambridge programme.
Alec is working across seven of the CIP sites, these locations will be home to a series of his living sculpture artworks including birdboxes, tree stakes and fingerposts, each having a specific poem engraved or written onto it that relates to the site. 
The first sandwich bike is being used by a resident of the Ironworks development so look out for it as you travel around the city. 
This is the first of a proposed series of sandwich bike artworks that will be provided to a selected resident of the new CIP developments. Further details on the scheme to be announced shortly.
