Cycling Exhibition

Rescue Geography are proud to announce details of our latest exhibition.  From Thursday 30 September 2010 for one week only we will be hosting a free exhibition based across the campus of the University of Birmingham.

The exhibition is based on research undertaken with commuter cyclists who work at the University.  Commentaries recorded while cycling home were used to create a series of maps based on GPS tracks.  These maps reveal stories about the experience of cycling, adding a new dimension to the work the University is already undertaking trying to encourage more sustainable forms of commuting.

Once again we've worked with Dan Burwood who has taken a series of portraits featuring some of the research participants.  These portraits and some of the maps will be flyposted at various locations around campus, for people either to visit in turn or accidentally stumble upon.

We'd greatly appreciate feedback on the exhibition:
