Our initial reaction when laying eyes on the Camper Bike was, "Ah, there go necessity and invention hand-in-hand again..." But we were wrong. The Camper Bike – yes, with a fully working camper – is a "functional sculptural piece," which is to say, it's art.
Reading a little further, though, we began to wonder just what kind of art: paintings of it come with slogans like "Scaling the summit with the Motherland in your heart," and "Camping far out in the wilderness forges a revolutionary heart." We don't know if that makes this a propaganda piece, but we do know that riding a bike fitted with a camper, in the city, is plenty revolutionary. After that, it doesn't really matter where you go.
