David Byrne – Lock It Down And Tune It Up

David Byrne is prolific across many media. Recently he completed a project in cooperation with Pace Wildenstein and the NYC Department of Transportation. Nine powder coated steel bike racks were fabricated from Byrne’s drawings and installed throughout the city. Each piece is themed after it’s location “The Chelsea” (above) and “The Villager” (below) are prime examples. From the Upper West side down to Tribeca all nine locations are listed on the map at David Byrne’s website. Fill the tires, oil the chain and check them all out.

The former front man for the Talking Heads also recently converted the NYC Battery Maritime Building into a musical instrument.

He walks you through it in the video below from Boing Boing.
