For some people, wheelchairs elicit very strong feelings, but in my opinion the reality is that they are just tools. We have to get past our fears and recognize that human potential shouldn't be determined based on what tools anyone may require. In many ways, we are all handicapped, in that there are some abilities that we can't perform because we haven't been provided the tools. What is truly sad is when people handicap others... whether subconsciously or intentionally denying them the potential to succeed, because of fears and prejudices. The intention of this work is to get people thinking about the assumptions they make by presenting an emotionally charged object in a different way than it traditionally is displayed. Context is a set of circumstances or experience that we use to make determinations. Context is a very important element in art. Wheelchairs are objects... they are not people, and they can be beautiful things.

Definitely agree! I am only limited by others. And the idiots that park in HC spots when they don't need them. HA!
pixel404 commented on February 1, 2013 6:26am
Art is a means to go places that we've never experienced, and to communicate ideas that words can't. Art can be the means to illustrate the surreal (what if Jackson Pollock flung wheelchairs instead of paint) and because of it's rich history, it creates context in the conversation that we as artists have with our viewers. Denying that history, or ignoring it, handicaps both the artist and the viewer and cheats them from having the richest and potentially most transcendent communication.

Brilliant. I love your comment, too. Wonderful work.
Bruce Stanfield commented on February 1, 2013 5:02pm
That is quite the piece my friend! interesting in many ways, we are quick to make judgements about people's "tools" or needs, I too value your comment (above) and this image! Thanks pixel404 - you are making a difference in a positive way! well done! :)
pixel404 commented on February 1, 2013 5:30pm
Thanks, Sarah and Bruce! I had several people personally respond to this work by contacting me (via other sites), saying how they were gratified that this work was addressing the often overlooked issues they face. While art can be purely decorative, it's exciting to me when I see art's full potential realized to positively affect lives in significant ways, and to raise concerns in a marked and memorable way that words can't.
pixel404 commented on February 1, 2013 7:02pm
Because of back issues and a lack of mobility that is the result of inventory control job related responsibilities, I've done some research into wheelchairs. I've spent significant time sitting in them in public places (shopping malls) seeing the world from the perspective of those that can't get around without them. I'd encourage everyone, especially if you can walk, to learn how difficult everything becomes in a world that is set-up for pedestrians. I'd also encourage the manufacturers of these items to begin creating models (or customization kits) to turn 'em into something that doesn't project such a serious impression. They are no different from cars or computers, tools to take people where they need to be. Isn't it time that wheelchairs and other devices for the differently-abled got a bit hipper?
Lazy Bones Studios commented on February 1, 2013 8:44pm
Excellent Pixel404!
rollerpimp commented on February 2, 2013 3:55am
I have been in a chair for 25 years and they have made chairs much hipper and incredibly beautiful in design. Check out www.tilite.com for some of the lightest, coolest chairs made and they are made in America. Carbon Fiber and Titanium all the way down to the axels. The chairs you use in this piece are mainly used in hospitals for short term transport. The problem occurs is that manufactures know that for the most part insurance companies will help to defer costs for the end user so they charge a ton to get a nice one. I like this piece for that statement that most people see these kind of chairs because they are the most readily afforded by the unknowledgeable or the uninsured.

Excellent Wayne and great to see the interaction in the feedback = Cheers!
pixel404 commented on February 2, 2013 10:53am
Thanks, Ken, Tim and Michael for your comments and support! Special thanks to Tim for the great information (which I will check out)... I was messaging back and forth earlier today with a new friend who uses a chair and is a teacher. She pointed out that as a woman, she faces additional stigma/fear in getting folks to accept her as a valuable person that contributes and just happens to use a tool to get around. So much still to learn on the subject... sharing is the greatest gift... so many ways that we can be more open, empathic and tangibly change the world for the better using art as a tool!
pixel404 commented on February 2, 2013 10:56am
... or a catalyst!
Bruce Stanfield commented on February 2, 2013 11:03am
Rollerpimp thats a cool site! and cool chairs! thanks Wayne too! I like the tool analogy, very true and now I have new thoughts about this and other "tools" we all use.... interesting indeed :)
