5-6-11 Davis, California. This is a zoetrope made from a bicycle wheel printed with footage of Dora Rinehart. Ms. Rinehart went on hundred-mile cycling tours during the 1890's during a time when woman wore restrictive clothing and could not travel freely. She was a trend-setter. If Dora were alive today, what would she say? Turn the wheel, stand back, and look at the moving image through the slots to find out. Shown in Art Space Gallery, Whole Earth Festival.
