Madrid’s Luzinterruptus remain one of the most consistent collectives of urban creatives working today. Their latest work, Pedaleo Seguro (Pedal Insurance), applies their iconic light-based DIY urbanism to the city’s bicycle lanes. As they state on the project website (via my translation from the original Spanish):
On November 21 we decided to install more bike lanes in downtown Madrid. What we wanted our “ephemeral bike lane” action to show that at the heart of our city there are no possibilities to bicycle safely, so we must move to outlying areas so that cycling is a weekend activity instead of a real mode of transportation … [with this action]… we hope that some late-night rider might now be able to use these lanes.
