Lightning Bug is an interactive bike rack intended to delight the cyclist and add creative illumination to an often overlooked urban artifact. This installation asks what more a bike rack could be beyond its accepted form and function. What would it mean to have smart bike racks all over our cities and towns? 

Flycycle believes bike racks can be beautiful, in the fullest sense: delightful to use for people of all ages and abilities, helpful to property managers, and an attractive component of the urban landscape. Flycycle was founded by Julia Hansen and Jeff Olinger, AIA.
