Bipod is a merging of the artist’s bicycle and video camera. Both instruments have dual spinning components and thus function as parodies of one another. Three individual models were shot on three notorious Southern California climbs: East Fork, Upper Rock Creek and Crystal Lake, while the artist cycled behind the riders, attempting to keep up. The multi-layered and rhythmic editing of the video piece creates a transformative and hypnotic merging of the original performances. Rhythm is often used in my video works as a transformative strategy akin to chanting. The circular sounds of a singing bowl and the spectacular natural setting also add further to the structure of the piece and the transformative quality of its repetitions and cycles. The still works engage the repetition of cycling, focusing on physical positions that are revisited countless times
