European cities have some of the best infrastructures in the world for bicycle commuters, with lanes, lights and speed limits designated solely to the two-wheeled travellers. One city that has not yet embraced the power of pedal pushers is Wiesbaden, Germany.
Creative agency Scholz & Volkmer have teamed up with artists Manfred Kraft and Tom Kresin in an attempt to change the city’s attitude towards cycling. The method? A robot named Radwende is drawing the routes of bicycle riders on a big map in the Museum Wiesbaden. Radwende is receiving the trip data from all the riders who download an app that tracks their pedal pushing.
Not only does the instalment create amazing prints (which can be bought by those who visit) it also shows where bike lanes are needed the most.
