Sanitov are not simply interested in making bikes; they hope to spread a much wider message with their GPS system that tracks users bike patterns onto to a map system. They hope that this will ultimately create a large collaborative art project as the routes of many different people are traced in different colours across the city. In their own words: “As we move about in the great urban cities of the world, we are taking part in an orchestrated series of vibrations… Ultimately making movement not just a sustainable action but an art form.”

The Art of Movement exhibition also features posters from a range of international artists from Copenhagen, Barcelona, Tokyo, Montreal and London. We loved the posters which include patriotic images such as the British Queen riding a bicycle and some more provocative images such as a re-make of the Last Supper image, with a bicycle inserted!
