LIFECYCLE: 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC

[ Invalid YouTube link ]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NZcXF10Ir9Q

Get a bike. Lock it to a post. Take a pic every day for a year.

Last year, Red Peak Branding conducted a unique urban experiment for Hudson Urban Bicycles. On January 1, 2011 we chained a fully loaded bike - bells, basket, lights and more - to a post along a busy Soho street. We took a picture of the bike everyday for 365 days, watching it slowly vanish before our eyes. The photos we took were then turned into a daily calendar. We call this project LIFECYCLE: 365 days in the life of a bike in NYC.

^ I hadn't heard the AYBABTU one.

There are plenty of these floating around - somebody sourced a copy of the CityRail DVA program and audio files and had some fun with it.  Unfortunately I have not been able to locate a copy for myself.

Er, no...

1. No disabled access
2. Doesn't branch
3. Low capacity
4. Stuck to rails
5. No overtaking
6. High cost
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

Should be able to do this easily with half-hour frequency on much of the Brisbane suburban train network.

Masstransiscope Debut


Quote
Bill Brands Masstransiscope was installed in the abandoned Myrtle Avenue subway station in Brooklyn, New York in September 1980. It has been seen by millions of commuters for over twenty-five years. The 228 hand-painted panels are viewed through a series of vertical slits set into a specially constructed housing. The piece works on the principle of the Zoetrope, a 19th century optical toy.
