What happens when you combine art, high tech materials on a low tech pathway? Something pretty special. Dutch designer Daan Roosegaard recreated part of Van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night using luminescent paint on a bicycle path. The paint ‘charges’ during the day and then gently illuminates the kilometer long path at night. Not sure about the durability of riding and walking on a painted surface but I sure hope it holds up and will continue to transition into other projects.
