Dave Eggers & Juan Martinez | Bison Bike
Presented by Electric Works
Location: Front Entrance
A bison barrels down Detroit's Mack Avenue. An aluminum scaled pangolin picks up middle school students and delivers them to an after-school tutoring program. A shiny rhinoceros heaves its way across an Atlanta public park. The rhino carries extra weight in the form of school-aged passengers and has extra power when they help pedal.
The Spirit of the Animals is in the Wheels is part transportation solution, part public art, and all joy. Juan Martinez and Dave Eggers have collaborated to create a fleet of pedal-powered beasts which are based in Detroit and travel the United States.
