NOTE: 

Remember the ''Forever Bicycles'' structure made of 1000 bicycles piled in layers inside the Taipei Fine Arts Museum during world-renowned Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei's ABSENT exhibition in October 2011? Two years on, Ai Weiwei has gone on to create an even bigger three-dimensional structure made of 3,144 interconnected bicycles. Forming a complex labyrinth-like monument, this is the artist’s reflection of his perception of the rapid pace of society both in China and around the world.
