Bicycles Built Based on People’s Attempts to Draw Them From Memory

Velocipedia8Velocipedia11

In 2009 designer Gianluca Gimini started asking friends and strangers to draw a men’s bicycle from memory. While some got it right, most made technical errors — missing fundaments parts of the frame or chain.

The exercise is similar to psychological tests used to demonstrate how little we know compared to what we think we do. However, for Gimini this isn’t about proving how dumb we are but, rather, how extraordinary our imaginations can be! Having now amassed a collection of 376 drawings from participants ranging from 3 – 88 years of age, Gimini has started building realistic renderings of the bikes based on these sketches, in a 3D program.*

*Post edited to clarify these are 3D renderings

Machine Gun Sculptures Built From Deconstructed Typewriters by Artist Ravi Zupa

Zupa3Zupa7

A play on the mightiness of words over weapons, Colorado-based artist Ravi Zupa’s series of machine gun sculptures are made from staplers and typewriters picked up at estate and garage sales. After careful disassembly, typewriter rollers become barrels with stapler gun triggers and grips as Zupa uses illustrations from old books and gun almanacs to create these minutely detailed replicas. More images from “Mightier Than” below.
