Nice Rack

The creative genius of Talking Heads founding member, David Byrne, did not end with the band in 1991--thank goodness! Since, he has been involved in the art world with projects like the "Playing the Building." This amazing experimental art project consisted of attaching devices to every element of the building structure to make it an enormous musical instrument.

Now, he's paired up with the DOT in NYC to create these unique, correlative, humorous bike racks throughout The Island. Wallpaper* reports (how I love Wallpaper*)>>
Given this beautiful installation and Bloomberg's efforts, I might be taking ol' trusty for a spin.
