Bicycling Counts Artist Interviewed in METRO Mag
July 13, 2012
The “City Bites” section of Twin Cities METRO Magazine’s July edition features artist Arlene Birt on communicating sustainability and her work with CEE on Bicycling Counts.
“For last month’s Twin Cities Bike Walk Week, Birt partnered with Center for Energy and Environment to install her ‘Bicycling Counts’ art project at bike routes in the metro area. For that project, a bicycle counter tracked the number of passing cyclists, projecting the data that each of those bikers means in terms of environmental, personal and societal health (e.g., improved air quality of financial savings) on a nearby wall in real time. The installation was meant to show the cumulative impact biking can have on a community.”
