Super Ken 2052

Material/ Ken, infusion drip machine, ink, paper, plastik houses, green grass
Measures/ 105 x 175 x 30 cm
2013/ Mannheim/ Germany

On a street market in Athens I bought this battery-powered bike, which drives in circles. I placed Ken, Barbie’s
boyfriend, on the bike and installed a drip infusion containing black ink on his back. Ken rode the bike in circles
by steadily dripping ink on the large sheet of paper, whereby redistributing the ink with the tires of the bike.
After 2.5 hours he stopped because the batteries were empty.
