Forever Bicycles

A couple of nights ago, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei stunned the people of Toronto with this magnificent installation Forever Bicycles. 3,144 bicycles were stacked 100 feet in length and 30 feet in height and depth in Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square, lit up with pink and blue lights.

This work is definitely the highlight of the all-night contemporary art event Scotiabank Nuit Blanche.

Ai Weiwei's previous bicycle installation was displayed at the Taipei Fine Arts Murseum in an indoor space, and consisted of 1000 bicycles. Here's a photograph of the installation back in 2011.

If anyone comes across it in Toronto, send us your photos with the installation
