W.I.P – Work in Progress : Batman style motorbike

Posted on Jun 27, 2014

I am working on a new big object, it’s my version of a Batman-style motorbike (a Batcycle or Batpod like in The Dark Knight).

It’s for an exhibition next year (2015) in a museum. I will be creating 3-4 big works for it. This
is the first one. The basis is two metal things I picked up from my mothers’ shed (no clue what their original purpose was). Together with two wheels (slicks) from a go-kart it will be as badass as can be!

90% of the work is done. Just a few things to do, disassembly, some welding and re-assembly. Nearly there!

First time experimenting with paper mache to strenghten joints.

The head still needs some work…

Don’t want to give it all away just yet, but yes those are gokart tires and an antique sowingmachine.

You can see the very rudimentary legs, Yup skinny ones…
