Radwende is a petition tool for improving the cycling infrastructure. It works simply by cyclists tracking their routes. These routes then are consolidated in a map that is used by city planners.
The installation records the routes traveled by cyclists every day and so “produces” a work of art each day.
The reward: every kilometer driven equals real currency, because for every 5.000 kilometers driven, the City applies a bicycle-friendly measure. In addition, users can pay our partners with their kilometers.
For 100 km you can purchase the Ars Electronica Festival catalog for 15,- euros
For 150 km you can purchase the Ars Electronica Festival day ticket for 34,- euros
