Late this summer, our friends Sam and Tyler approached us with an idea for an art installation: suspend motorcycles in a gallery in such a way that people who don’t ride will come to understand the reasons why we do. Thus, Stop/Action was born. Here’s how we made it.

    Great job, guys! The visual effect is awesome.

  • robotribe

    Wow. Bitchin’ job. Seriously.

    Did you paint the bikes?

    • Wes Siler

      We wrapped ‘em in vinyl.

      • robotribe

        Ah; hence the scissors. I see now.

    Not exactly Christo wrapping the Reichstag in silver cloth, but still a neat installation. Looks like you guys had fun. The images certainly do convey a sense of motion and dynamism.

    I really with I could have seen this in real life.

    I really enjoyed the photos. Why were the bikes so dusty?

      They were shipped up from Aprilia’s storage warehouse in Dallas which is apparently a filthy, filthy place.
