    Ever thought you could get money for your hacked together bikes? Part
    of teh work of Simon Starling (this years Turner prize winner) include
    building a bike from an office chair, and making an electric bike to
    carry him over the Sahara.

    Actually the bike in the exhibition was gas-powered not electric IIRC.
    And he rode it across a desert in Spain for all of 40 km (might have
    been 40 miles - don't quite remeber) - anyway, it would have been a
    lot simpler to take an extra water bottle and ride a standard bike.
    But less artistic ...

    His future work plans include throwing a replica Henry Moore sculpture
    into Lake Ontario.

    "Zebra mussels have been introduced into the lake and they are taking
    over and transforming the ecosystem," he said.

    Says it all really.
