"Interlocking gears are a metaphor for the relationship between pedestrians, bicycles, and automobiles, as the successful functioning of our transportation system relies on the predictable motion from each part,
which in turn directly influences the motion of its immediate interlocking part."

With support from the NYC Department of Transportation's Urban Art Program in partnership with New York Cares and the Mayor's Community Affairs Unit.
Special thanks to NYC Community Cleanup, Benjamin Packer, Chris Hagerty, Roseanne Bergeron, Joshua Edwards, Shari Zolla and the NY Cares volunteers who helped realize this project.
