Desire Lines by Jess Ramm

Desire Lines was a live event in which a group of BMX riders trace out printed pathways using a choreographed series of stunts, commissioned by Place Partnership at OneRen for Cycle Arts Festival 2021. 

The tyres are coated with a range of coloured chalk paints that leave the ground covered with the print of each person’s individual journey, tracing the impression of many paths crossing in and out, following each other and diverging apart. The performance happened on the cycle path at Johnstone Bridge and at Telfords Pub at Paisley Canal Station. Concept created by Jessica Ramm Stunt riders: Dan Banks, Jason Phelan & Matt Abel , Percussion: Alex Neilson.
