Get a bike. Lock it to a post. Take a pic every day for a year.
Last year, we 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.
On a sunny stroll through Soho yesterday, I came across a unique establishment… It’s called WeWork and they have 4 locations, three in NYC, one in San Francisco. They’re filled with rented work spaces catering to new/small businesses and encourage collaboration among other businesses in the space. The boutique spaces are functional, have tons of great amenities and also utilize sustainable design. Check it out here.
