Upsetting the Apple Cart: Building the Weaving Wagon

Here is my latest collaboration with Sharon Kallis, Rebecca Graham, and EartHand Gleaners Society. This short film documents the planning, construction, and use of the Weaving Wagon, a bicycle powered cart that allows these two environmental artist to take their show on the road, without need of a car or truck.  Along the way, they work with bike engineer and Shift Delivery co-owner Geoff Hibbard and Alastair Heseltine, an expert willow weaver at his studio on Hornby Island. Part of a wave of local businesses that are employing pedal power, the Weaving Wagon also harkens back to an earlier time before the internal combustion engine, when a wide variety of hand made vehicles carried our goods and services.
