Presentation of Dick Raaymakers: A Monograph

The Graphic Method Bicycle

Jan 2008
15:00 to 18:00
location: MUZIEKGEBOUW AAN 'T IJ , Piet Heinkade 1, Amsterdam


On the occasion of the publication of the Monograph there will be a performance of The Graphical Method Bicycle (1979). A man on a bicycle is being towed extremely slowly along a road of about ten meters by a cable. In an excruciatingly slow tempo, the man is lifted out of the saddle by the action of one of the bicycle pedals. His heartbeat, breathing and muscle tone variation become audible for the audience.
