performance in public

AV /DV is a small performance piece for public space. The goal is to balance the pressure between an inflated car tire and a flat bicycle tire. As a tool for this performance a 40 cm ‘Auto Valve’ pressure hose is equipped with ‘Dunlop Valve’ bicycle adapter on the other end. A typical car tire usually holds a pressure between 2.2 -2.7 bar. A bicycle tire can even go up to 8 bar (racing bikes) but often is much lower. At the end of this performance both tires had the same pressure of 2.5 bar, which fair enough to ride a bike (to find more air later…). In the case of the porsche cayenne the tire went only down from 2.8 to 2.5 bar. The sensors haven’t even complained yet.
