Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper seeks to examine the modern bicycling commuter around intersections. The stress factors and the effects that optics, here shapes, colours and placement in the infrastructure has on the modern commuter. By the methods of observation, inductive methods and a method of design we seek to improve the behaviours of the cycling commuter. We seek to design an artefact that applies to the modern human based on Goethe’s colour theory, theories on visual intelligence and theories on focal and ambient vision. Prior to this knowledge we’ve studied theories on commuter’s time perception, telic and paratelic theories and the postmodern society’s perception of time and space. Finally the design is placed 12,5 metres from the intersection, shaped with smooth corners and colours that calm/encourage the cyclist on their commuting trip.
