Balloon Bike
March 2012
In 2009 the City of Austin passed an ordinance requiring drivers to maintain a 3' safe passing distance between their vehicles and "vulnerable road users," such as cyclists and pedestrians.

Balloon Bike visualizes where 3' from every point on a bike exists in space. A secondary intention is to remind viewers of the vulnerability of cyclists on the road by incasing a bike in a protective cushion of balloons.

Made with generous support from the University of Texas Green Fee.
