Tonight in Los Angeles!

Check the 1000 Bikes pop-up store at the Downtown LA Art Walk.

All proceeds go directly to my buddy CoolAssMike's awesome organization:

« The 1000 Bikes Foundation is a not-for-profit organization which is dedicated to putting a bike in the hands of 1000 foster youth and their families in communities across the United States. The 1000 Bikes Foundation is more than just a charity; it is a movement that creates a treadmark in every city it rides through. Through the giving of equipment, education and demonstration projects, 1000 Bikes promotes the use of bicycles to foster youth and their families as a way of looking beyond their current situation, facilitating family bonding and encouraging healthier lifestyles. »

AFFINITY x KENZO MINAMI = DIGITIZER


A CINECYCLE PRODUCTION

Kenzo Minami is an artist and designer who grew up in Japan in the 80’s. During this time, Japan experienced a huge economic boom fueled by the country’s technological supremacy. The graphic design that dominated this era was one that underscored the “more is more” attitude. Japanese design embraced a euphoric idealism of the new digital frontier where design became a fantastic reflection of all technology could be. Kenzo’s inspiration for “Digitizer” came from this nostalgia of his childhood. However, this inspiration is tempered with a practical purpose. “Within the chaos of visual information found on city streets it is important that the design allows the bicycle to stand out and be recognized by both pedestrians and cars alike,” reflects artist Kenzo Minami. “The colors and patterns on the bicycle were carefully conceived and laid out with the understanding that they will not only be seen when the frame and wheels are static but more importantly how they will be transformed when the bicycle is in motion.”

Cinecycle curated this project, with the goal of producing an item of extreme beauty and quality, which explores the intersection of form, function and design. To that end, Cinecycle is proud to have brought together premiere artist Kenzo Minami and Affinity Cycles to create the “Digitizer” project. “Digitizer synthesizes concepts that are fundamental to our culture with regard to how technology can inform and transform our perception of space. Affinity Cycles, Kenzo Minami and Cincecyle have come together to create a project that expresses how the cyclist, even in our modern digital age, still represents the most simple and effective union of man and machine,” says Daniel Leeb, CEO, Cinecycle.
