Ai Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles sculpture in Toronto

Ai Weiwei, China’s most prominent contemporary artist, recently brought a recreated version of his Forever Bicycles sculpture to Toronto’s Nuit Blanche festival. The size of the new sculpture has grown exponentially, and the once 1,000 bicycle installation now exceeds 3,144.

The bicycles are layered to create a sense of motion, even though the installation itself is completely static. It’s quite an awe-inspiring visual experience.
