Bike Rack

Bike Rack

A very literal yet humorous typographic interpretation of the theme with a nod to Robert Indiana. Since the artist is a graphic designer by profession, the idea of creating an interactive sculpture made out of a typeface appealed to him. It also allows the more visually challenged to realize the sculpture is intended as a bike rack, not just a sculpture to view.
