Manufactured Totems


A few days ago a reader sent me a link to to this blog with images of these incredible feats of  human and mobile engineering (thanks Jeff!). They are part of a series titled Manufactured Totems by Alain Delorme. Beautiful and incredible at the same time. I particularly like the above image of all the car and motorcycle tires being carried by human power (ironic, right?)...the guy going by carrying a ladder on his shoulder is also a nice touch. To see more of the series, click here. To go to the artist's website, click here.

Joe,

In 10 years - this will be a common sight in the USA too

Dan, difficult for me to imagine in the car-centric U.S., but one can hope.

Joe,

Peak oil will force the change to cycling from cars. Cargo bikes, like your Yuba, are going to be in demand.

While I look forward to the more bicycles, I am very concerned about the transition to a lower energy world - especially on the food issue.
