To create his incredibly detailed and accurate wireframe versions of common objects, Chinese artist Shi Jindian crochets steel wire around them before destroying or removing the object once his sculpture is complete. The Chiangjiang 750 seen in wire ghost form here is similar to a Ural sidecar in that it's based on a 1937 BMW R71. We have no idea how such a substantial and intricate bike could have been removed from within its wire frame, so can only speculate that pieces were created individually before coming together in a final assembly; an inadvertent parallel to how the machine itself is created.
