Olympic public art inspired by Vancouver transit!

Olympic public art inspired by Vancouver transit!

The City of Vancouver’s public art program has a neat transit-related project from artist Anna Ruth, called Sensory Maps of Vancouver. Check out the video above for more on the project, plus here’s the description from their website:

Sensory Maps of Vancouver is a series of drawings that record the movement of city buses and reflect the experience of public transportation in the urban environment. Using simple drawing tools, the Finland-based artist let the vibrations of each vehicle dictate the lines she translated to paper as she rode and moved from bus to bus during one 24-hour period covering as much of the city as possible. The end result—twenty bus routes, one train line and one Seabus trip later—is a collection of ‘maps’.

Very cool! Look for the maps in bus shelters throughout Vancouver from January 25 to March 21, 2010.
