ARTIKCAR by Ben Wilson

I didn’t think I would have time to post today, but here is a quick one.

You may remember Ben Wilson from the ‘seebikesaw’ that he designed for Brooks England. His latest project ARTIKCAR was designed for Walk the Plank’s illuminated Art Car Parades, which will kick off on the streets of Manchester, UK later this week. Wilson was one of three artists who were awarded commissioning money to create a mobile work of art, which will join the existing troupe of vehicles. His ARTIKCAR design was “inspired by a child’s wooden toy car. The Pedal Powered vehicle is made from steel tubing, it steers by leaning and uses an innovative technology to illuminate the car.”

For more information about the upcoming parades in Manchester and in Edinburgh, see the Walk the Plank website. For more details about the ARTIKCAR project, check out Ben’s blog.
