About Benjamin Rice

About the artwork

Japanese bicycles

Those curious to see the latest trends in Japanese cycle design may be disappointed, but those seeking to understand the famously enigmatic Japanese character may be intrigued. This is really a study of Japanese exterior design through the prism of Its neatly parked bicycles.

Japan is justifiably famous for its gardens, but formal gardens and bicycles make for an unhappy alliance; I rarely found the two together, but I was struck by how many city residents chose to display some form of foliage outside their properties. Very few had front gardens if there was any space between the pavement and the building it would invariably be allocated as a car park. Many people opted to squeeze a few favourite plant pots against their wall, a hint of nature in an otherwise overcrowded and regimented world.

This series is more about my observation of the nuances of Japanese culture, and the captivating mystery of their absent owners.
