The polygonal linear structure of this public art creates a transparent visualization of a cyclist who is riding an infinity symbol. “Infinity Cycle” is the outcome of precise engineering and modern fabrication methods. It is made of stainless steel 316 rods that get illuminated in the evening hours via in-ground LEDs. The sculpture stands 6.5 feet tall and 8 feet long.

The piece was created in commemoration of the 37th anniversary of the Tour de White Rock bike race. It was designed to enhance a highly visible open plaza in the city where the bike race would go through. The message of infinity in this public art has its roots in the idea of human’s constant tendency to move forward towards the infinite future.
A multi-party collaboration between the artist, landscaping team, and stakeholder resulted in harmony to make the site of installation a pleasant place to gather and reflect on the collective values.
"Infinity Cycle" was unveiled by the Mayor of White Rock accompanied by the White Rock community.
