Bicycles are some of the most ubiquitous objects in a city’s streets, but in spite of their commonality and simplicity of design, it seems that these machines regularly confound most people who are asked to draw one. This strange disconnect was the subject of a tongue-in-cheek project by Italian designer Gianluca Gimini who, over six years, approached hundreds of friends and random strangers to draw a bike from memory. Their failed drawings have been recreated and immortalized into fantastical, if half-believable objects, although successfully riding any one would be too far of a stretch. In being transformed at the hands of Gimini, these are not so much a mark of the shortcomings of people’s memories, but instead become a testament to human creativity.
