The Bike Church (Joe O'connell and Blessing Hancock)
Bike Church is a walk-in metal sculpture made from recycled bike parts arranged into geometric forms that borrow from the religious iconography of Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Native American faiths. ‘Stained glass’ windows cast colors onto the white structure while solar lights illuminate the building at night. Bike chimes hang like organ pipes and give the sculpture an interactive twist, as visitors can play the chimes and fill the surrounding area with sound. Shrines allow visitors to contribute to the sculpture, as they can place pictures or other mementos at the memorial.
