Teeth and Grooves

"Interlocking gears are a metaphor for the relationship between pedestrians, bicycles and automobiles, as the successful functioning of our transportation system relies on the predictable motion from each part, which in turn directly influences the motion of its immediate interlocking part."

 

Artist Eugenie Tung’s design of brightly colored spokes and gears rotate and turn as cyclists ride along this barrier site. Eugenie Tung worked alongside 200 volunteers to paint this mural measuring approximately 1400 feet in length.
