a social green space on wheels? that’s what john bela of rebar group and till wolfer of N55 had in mind when the conceived ‘parkcycle swarm’. consisting of four small mobile parks, the project explores the possibilities of the public sculpture, while at the same time raising awareness of cycle-power and green space trough a participatory activity. ‘parkcycle swarm’ invites city dwellers to pedal the mini park lands throughout the city of baku (or any metropolitan area for that matter). ‘parkcycle’ has been specially commissioned for PARTICIPATE: baku public art festival 2013, produced by YARAT contemporary art organization which continues until september 17th in the capital of azerbaijan.
