Artist and inventor Ronald Van Der Meijis's bicycle art 'Sound Architecture IV' is a labor of love and a mixture of art and nature.

The art work is made up of 5,000 bicycle bells attached to steel pins. The way the piece operates is as the wind blows and picks up, the bells cling against one another and create a noise similar to the sound of a wind chime. Ronald's breathtaking piece is metallic and incorporates the wonders of nature, like rocks and weather, to manifest functional art.

Each bicycle bell is precisely placed to offer the best sound quality possible and the curvatures of the piece allow the vibrations to flow.

Ronald's bicycle art is a musical masterpiece that plays to the tune of mother nature.
