    Wire Frame Motorcycle and Sidecar
    Gear  /  Design
    Chinese artist Shi Jindian has made a wire frame replica of the Chiangjiang 750, is essentially a knockoff of the Russian military M72-M is for mototsikl-which was an evolutionary version of BMW's 1938 R71 side.
    "Shi Jindian’s sculptures are made of steel, yet they are light, transparent, almost ethereal. After searching for years for “a material that was brand new, completely untraditional”, he settled on steel wires. By trial and error, he learned how to crochet the two-dimensional strands into three-dimensional forms, using tools of his own devising. His wire meshes start out as wrappings around some common object. When the mesh is complete, Shi Jindian destroys or extracts the object, leaving only its steel exoskeleton. The result, he says, is a kind of fiction, a virtual reality that can be walked around and touched. Surrealist René Magritte painted a pipe along with the words: “This is not a pipe.” Shi Jindian does something similar in sculpture, making not-quite-replicas of items from musical instruments to machines"
