Forever bicycles is included in Ai Weiwei’s new exhibit in Taiwan. It’s an incredible, arching layer of a thousand bikes and reflects’s Ai’s perception of the rapid pace of China’s social change.

In the few years we’ve ridden in China, we’ve seen massive change, including the bike. This work is like Ai took a bike pile and lifted it up into the ceiling of a fine art gallery where the world’s bicycles are made.

When I saw the One on One bike pile, I thought, at some point that’s going to become self aware and crawl out of this basement and fill the bike lanes of this city.
