When is a bicycle not a bicycle? Does it have to move you? If so, does it have to move you through space, or is an emotional response (even just a chuckle) good enough? Robertus van der Wege's bikes are anything but practical. They look as though they were pulled directly from the pages of Dr. Seuss book, with wheels that spin other wheels, frames connected to frames and new takes on the look of bike seats. Quirkiness rules over function.
