ArN2thrO2pO2cene is an installation that, for the 50th anniversary of the bike bill, celebrates the positive impact biking has on the air we breathe. The anthropocene is a geologic time period defined by human effects on climate and the earth’s environment. One of the largest implications of human environmental influence on our environment is the quality of our air.
Initial design inspirations were found in air flow diagrams and heat maps of bikers and bicycles. Produced using parametric design software, this installation abstracts the relationship between air, rider, and bicycle.
