Walk alongside, and watch the cyclists travel with you. Try moving at different speeds!
Tampines was the first town in Singapore to have dedicated cycling paths, and an ongoing expansion of its network is set to further transform urban transportation here.
Inspired by the growing popularity of cycling as a means of commuting, Cycle Ink draws attention to how the sport has changed urban life. To create this artwork, photographs of cyclists in Tampines were used to make an optical illusion that plays with light and pattern to trick the eye into seeing movement where there is none.
