Introduction

A History of Cycling in Brooklyn is an interactive video installation that explores the history of bicycle culture in Brooklyn from 1880 to today. The piece uses the Brooklyn Historical Society's east-facing windows as windows into different time periods of this historical narrative. It is part of the group show Brooklyn Utopias?, which took place at the Brooklyn Historical Society from October 1st, 2009 - January 24th, 2010. It could be seen from Clinton Street, in Brooklyn Heights, sundown to sunrise, according to this calendar. The artwork is interactive in the sense that it invites anyone with Brooklyn-based cycling media to submit it for possible inclusion in the piece itself. A History of Cycling in Brooklyn is created Eric Corriel. Read more about the piece here.
