This mechanism recreates the topography I experienced traveling by bicycle. In this version of the piece a landscape is rotated centered on Chamonix France. A stack of eccentric cams rotates moving levers that in turn move the intersections of telescoping brass rods to create the landscape. Only parts of the terrain I experienced first hand are used in creating the topography. In this instance information from bicycle tours in 2000, 2003 and other travel in 2001 generate the terrain data.
