After coming up with many terrible ideas for a project, I decided to look for inspiration. I got on my phone and googled “upcycled art,” hoping to see something that would inspire me. Then, it hit me. I remembered a small motorcycle statue I purchased in Vietnam that consisted of nuts, bolts, and washers welded together.
Drawing upon this idea, I decided to use paperclips instead of nuts and bolts, and solder instead of welding.
Similar to this motorcycle, I will be making a mountain bike. I envision it to have fully functional wheels and steering. I am going for an industrially chic look, so I’ll make a bike stand out of palette wood and more paper clips.
