Nette Spielerei von Kati Hyyppä, ein Seismograph für's Fahrrad:
I have an old, Dutch bicycle, an omafiets, as they say in the Netherlands. In Amsterdam riding this kind of bike was a pleasure, but as I moved to Berlin, I soon realized that the roads were of unpleasantly uneven nature. Sometimes parts would literally fall off my bike as I clattered over cobblestone and cracked asphalt. The idea for a bicycle seismograph, that is, a mechanical drawing machine, which records the bumpiness of the ride on a small paper roll, was born from these shaky experiences. In summer 2016 came the opportunity to turn this idea into reality in a form of a workshop called Data bicycles at the A/D/A festival, which approached smart cities and citizen utopias with a twist.
