Olafur Eliasson Is Your New Bicycle

This beautiful, confounding, and utterly unrideable bicycle by Olafur Eliasson is just around the corner from the artist's equally unrideable ripples-in-a-mercury-pond skate deck.

Even when it's not installed in Kanazawa's spectacular 21st Century Museum, Olafur's work is some of the most photogenic contemporary art in the world. The bicycle turns up somewhere around #55 in the slideshow on his website. The exhibition itself runs through March 22.
