“In bed, lying awake in the darkness, everything from the past and future swirls together…Once the lights have gone out my mind starts to wander to irrational places as I toss and turn in an attempt to control what I cannot…I envision the roads I will ride, the winding course, the corners, the roundabouts and the descent — the smooth tarmac will be slick. I see a crash; I see myself crashing. I suppress the thought. Gliding through the corner, I accelerate as I travel out of it, attacking my pursuers. Behind, the peloton crumbles into ones and twos as riders fight to hold the wheel in front of them”—The Conspicuous Non-Conformist - Competitive Cyclist
“To examine the communicative nature and intricate balance between realistic portrayal and emotive interpretation of action in space, my work, The Bicycle Camera, borrows the spectator’s preexisting visual impression of the road as viewed from a moving bicycle
as a basis for contrast to a manipulated film that depicts the action.”—
Soooooo, what you are telling me is that this is a camera on a bicycle. How’s my aim?
