Mobile Bike Studio, a Utilitarian Work of Art by MFA Candidate, on Display at SDSU Downtown Gallery

Peter Scheidt’s customized bicycle, complete with spoon cabinet opener, stool, tools, and sawhorse expands the function of a common object.

SDSU School of Art + Design MFA candidate, Peter Scheidt, is one of several artists featured in Every Which Way, a new exhibit at the Downtown Gallery, running through April 9, 2017. Every Which Way is the third in an annual series of exhibitions inspired by SDSU’s campus-wide initiative, the Common Experience. This innovative show, comprised of works by students and faculty, explores the theme “Experience Movement.” Peter, a graduate student in woodworking and furniture design, will bring his unique artwork, a mobile bike studio, to display in the gallery for the duration of the show. What makes his bike studio so unique, other than the fact that it is a bike studio, is that it carves spoons from discarded furniture. Peter Scheidt’s customized bicycle, complete with spoon cabinet opener, stool, tools, and sawhorse expands the function of a common object. His choice of adaption, outfits him with the opportunity to work anywhere, transforming the piece into a mobile workshop to make one-of-a-kind creations. Over the last year, Scheidt has modified the bicycle physically to incorporate the changing social landscape, allowing the piece to stay in a constant state of flux.
