The “motorcycles” will tour with the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows in the US and are a culmination of collaboration between body paint artist Trina Merry and Ryan Berman.
The net result was three “human motorcycles” – a Ducati sport bike, a KTM dirt bike and a Harley-Davidson cruiser – which were created over three days.
Technically those used in the construction of these “motorcycles” weren’t models, but a combination of dancers, yoga instructors and circus performers who were able to undertake the contortions needed to form the variety of shapes, including wheels, seats, exhaust pipes and handle bars.
This is really cool as an art project and an exercise in “human sculpturing”. Thanks to Greg for the link!
