Well, David Byrne has been busy indeed. After downloading his new collaboration with Brian Eno, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, I stopped by his web site looking for info on the Chicago appearance of his upcoming tour (which for some strange reason is the only one you can’t buy tickets for – not listed on Ticketmaster, no info available anywhere). One of the things I saw there was this:
David Byrne is an avid biker, and bikes all over New York. It seems he’s designed a series of bike racks that have been placed throughout the city. There’s a map on the page with locations of each one. However, they’re only going to be displayed for one year. That seems odd to me, you would think something that’s functional and artistic is something the city would want to keep around. I’m pretty sure if it was Chicago they’d be permanent fixtures.
