"Suffolk Deluxe Electric Bicycle 1"
Dev Harlan and Olek, collaboration, 2011
Originally presented at the NY Studio Gallery, “Suffolk Deluxe Electric Bicycle, I” is a collaborative sculpture between artists Olek (agataolek.com) and Devan Harlan. Starting from wildly differing artistic disciplines the work converges with the two artists penchant for transforming the world around them through color and pattern.
Olek's prolific series of street art bicycles wrapped in hand crocheted skins provides the template for a entirely new hybrid work. Rather than using fabric the two artists wrap the bicycle in light. Devan's advanced practice utilizing real-time 3D and projection mapping to cover surfaces in luminous pattern is merged with the raw physicality of hand made camouflage covering.
Transcending both new media and fiber arts, the work stands at the precipice of a new viewing experience. While radiant color and motion play across the bicycle's iconic form a hypnotic simultaneity takes over, leaving the viewer hovering at the threshold of the limited and the limitless.
