The Act Of 'Illegal Cycling'

Cyclists in the city constantly pass through no-cycle zones. Jumping red lights, using pavements and crossing pedestrianised streets to speed up their journey. In a bid to find the shortest route they come into close proximity with others, whether it be pedestrians, vehicles or the static city - barriers, buildings, signposts.

In a world with ever increasing activity these whiskers for a cyclist gently indicate to the rider when an impact is about to take place, avoiding the otherwise inevitable collision. The ends of the fibres will also pick up traces of other objects for post-crash forensic analysis, useful in situations where the cyclist ignores the warning given to them.
