Have you ever wondered about those bits of bikes you sometimes see chained to lampposts and railings? In this short film by Lifecycle, we follow the fortunes of an everyday bike that was chained to a New York post over a period of 365 days using timelapse photography:
When first chained to the post, the bike was fully loaded with a bell, basket, lights and much more. Taking one photograph per day, the film reveals the bike slowly being reduced to nothing before our own eyes. By day 269, the bike had gone completely.
So next time you chain your bike to a post, make sure you take everything with you, or of course you could start photographing it on a daily basis.
