In connection to the projects collaboration with Exit Art and Earth Day in April 2011, two Danish Biomega bikes were donated to the project. One was given to Matthew Modine and the other was handed over to David Byrne to be pimped out with 12,000 Swarovski crystals and later raffled off by Exit Art to benefit their excellent non-profit Arts organization. Our good friends from Gold Mine Shit House came to the Exit Art Benefit event and did silkscreens on clothes and such that people brought along, along with live music and a lovely party.

The bike was won by Sinclaire Marber and if all goes well, can be seen in the future at one of the Art exhibitions in connection to the project as a sculpture.

If you have not read David Byrne's "Bicycle Diaries" yet, you should!

An avid cycler in addition to the lead singer of Talking Heads, wrote and arranged the following video, which is a "poem to the bicycle and the people who ride them." This was shown at the 2011 International Green Energy Economy Conference in Washington DC


On August 13th 2011, the 11th version of the CO2 E - Race Performance will take place in Copenhagen. The 3rd version of the project (after Milan and Riga) was also performed in Copenhagen during the UN Climate Conference COP15 in 2009, the very same day that Obama was in town and the streets were in chaos. This time around, the CO2 tag performance will be done over the area in Copenhagen called Amager, where Yrs Truly also lives. 

After the tag performance is done, there will be a "Cat Walk" on Islands Brygge. Islands Brygge (English: Iceland Quay) is a harbourfront area in central Copenhagen, located on the north-western coast of Amager. The neighbourhood is noted for its waterfront park Havneparken, which is one of the most popular areas along the Copenhagen harbourfront and the location of one of the Copenhagen Harbour Baths, with clean swimmable water in the middle of the city.

The abnove image from Google Earth is from Islands Brygge waterfront. The red line indicating where the cars will go from the street, over the little square where the pink rectangle indicates the location of the "Cat Walk" and the orange area the space where the vehicles will be exhibited.

With inspiration from the California environmentalist group "Angry Green Girls" there will be a "Bikini Cars Wash" on the waterfront during the afternoon in connection to the exhibition of vehicles, along with live music and music from "Karma Kanonen" that is a group of gentlemen who have rebuilt Christiania Bikes into sustainable sounds systems running on leg and sun power. Mr. Green and his lovely green suited crew will also join the day. Go to the Facebook Page HERE to see more and join the event!
