LINK: Untitled Project: HONDA CB77 SUPER HAWK
A carved and painted sculpture of the 1964 Honda CB77 Superhawk motorcycle at 1:1 scale. The Honda CB77 Superhawk is known for its speed, power and reliability and in many ways set the paradigm for modern motorcycles. This particular motorcycle also has some literary connections to the 1970’s best selling novel Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values. The author, Robert M. Pirsig, rode a Honda CB77 Super Hawk on a cross country trip with his son in 1968. As Robert Pirsig states in the novel: “the real cycle you are working on is the cycle called yourself,” and I am interested in how this carved and painted motorcycle sculpture and its construction is part of a dialectical motion, connecting labor to material to economies—a complex gathering of a self in the world.  
An additional component of this project involves a series of 36  paintings of Honda CB77 Superhawk motorcycle parts based on images from ebay auctions. These paintings reconstruct the vintage motorcycle as a series of fragmented parts moving through a resale economy.
