Kim Adam's for inSITE97, Toaster Work Wagon, was a grafting on existing nomadic street life (i.e. concession vehicles). The trailered unit, constructed from the hoods and ends of two Volkswagen vans, set out on daily wanderings around San Diego and Tijuana like a winged toaster. Popping open into a work-waiting station, the Wagon attracted crowds of children and bystanders with its unusual contents. Children's bicycles were grafted into two-headed tricycles that were left at the site for adoption. Children experimented with the bicycles, cooperating with one another to move in one direction or the other. Adam's project experimented with notions of form and function as well as movement and direction. During the public phase of inSITE97, the Wagon was displayed at the Centro Cultural Tijuana. --inSITE97
