Modification and process
Bought a second hand bicycle on Hengfeng Bei Road where most second hand bicycles there were stolen goods.
Had some modification on the bought bike, edged some accessories such as mudguard, flywheel, etc. and sharpened bolt, handlebar, etc. The modification of these accessories transformed this bicycle into a combination of criminal weapons, although the appearance looks the same as other bicycles.
On 14th of December, 2008, left the modified bicycle at an alley on Hengfeng Bei Road, where the bike was bought.
Waiting for the bike to be stolen, but it was still there at 17:30.
Until 10:30am on the next day, 15th of December, the bike was gone.
The work is concerned about the possibility of potential public violence in today’s society and the infectivity of criminal emotion.
