#TechTalk: Artist creates Van Gogh-inspired glowing bike path

You’ve got to give it to the creatives of this world.

Daan Roosegaarde, a Dutch artist and designer, has come up with an idea as genius as it is gorgeous.

In an effort to promote biking and highlight art, the innovator created a solar powered, glow-in-the-dark bike path.

What’s particularly interesting about this kilometer-long path is that it looks a lot like Van Gogh’s Starry Night and happens to be situated in the Dutch County (Brabant) where Gogh was born and raised – a modern day ode to the famous painter indeed.

For the artists reading this, hope this inspires you to create something similar in your home countries! There’s always more room for art in this world – especially when it comes in the form of glowing bike paths.

    Mutula is a voice of reason,his reasoning resonates well with the voiceless

  • Songambele

    The problem with Mutula is he says one good thing one day then says a bunch of other over-the top remarks the next day.  The ruling barring public discussion of a pending court case was directed at him.  He does not seem to take this very well insulting the court with language that the ruling is “ridiculous”.  Respect the court.  If you do not agree with it, file an appeal.  Show Kenyans that courts deserve respect Mr. Justice Minister.  There is suplication of portfolios in Kenya and the next cabinet should scrap the Justice ministry.  What role does it serve?  Any of its functions can be served by the courts and the AG/DPP’s office.  That way we don’t waste money on never ending critiques/interpretation of the constitution by a member of the Executive.  His interpretations are not binding and are not precedents.

    What is the job of the Minister for Justice?  Interpret law and the Constitution? Oversee courts? AG? DPP? Table bills to parliament?  All of these? Just too broad a job and seems to enroach on the powers of the legislative and judicial branches.  I agree with songambele.  Scrap it.  Bills will in future be tabled by MPS and Senators.  Our new CJ and his team can interpret the law.  The AG and DPP prosecute cases.  So no need to waste money on a Ministry of Justice.  Build hospitals with the money.
