"Don’t want your Lance Armstrong books anymore?" asked The Cycle Hub bike shop/cafe on Tyneside earlier this year. "Then send them to us!"

Hundreds of books by or about the disgraced cyclist were handed in. The result is an art installation for this weekend's Late Shows in Newcastle, a range of cultural events across a number of venues.

Pages from the books have been ripped out and glued to the floor, with a varnish over the top. Quotes from Lance Armstrong's autobiography, 'It's not about the bike', have been placed on top of the pages in large letters.

The installation also includes DVDs, a signed yellow jersey and a Trek carbon road bike in US Postal Service team colours.
