1 Car = 2 Bicycles. See the Transformation Live, Starting Saturday

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Cars into Bicycles sounds a little like an eco-oriented Transformers, but it's less Optimus Prime and more performance workshop. Head over to Bergamot Station on Saturday at Noon, and at 11 a.m. for the following three Saturdays after that, to watch as German artists Folke Koebberling and Martin Kaltwasser, with the help of students from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena dismantle an old car and turn it into two fully-operational bicycles. While the crew is at work, you can hear different guest speakers from Metro, and on Saturday, April 10th, even get the chance to ride the new bicycles during the final presentation. (Pop in to SMMoMA while you're there--they gave us the heads up on this cool event!)
