Still no sign of Petra, send yet another email and try to contact a few mutual friends to see if anyone has heard from her ... nothing hope she has found a warm and dry place to hang out.
Cycles is an ongoing series of physical and virtual interventions that continues Cheryl Rondeau's exploration of the intersection between art and the everyday. Using the bike as the main mode of travel each intervention is fueled by determination and human-power.
Loaded with maps, camera, phone and notebook Rondeau logs her trouvailles and maps out her parcours. The Situationists were known to use walkie-talkies on their dérives. Similarly, she exploits today’s technology. Daily activities involve collecting ephemera, digital video and photography to map the geography of the experience and record the multiplicity of interstitial spaces between the departure and arrival points. Maintaining a record of the borders crossed and the landscapes traversed; while dealing with the elements and the fatigue that is at the core of long-distance cycling.
