The Summit County Public Art Board selected local artists to create an installation that utilizes artistic expression to encourage increased ridership at a new public transit facility. The facility is located west of the Summit County Library on West Ute Blv. Six sculptures titled How We Move, are attached to the bus shelters and present transit riders with a stunning visualization of data collected from human movements.
The artist team collaborated with six local residents to observe the unique movements of cross-country skiing, walking, ski jumping, mountain biking, handcycling and bobsledding. Subjects wore tiny sensors equipped with an accelerometer and gyroscope that recorded acceleration data ten times every second generating nearly 4000 observations for each of the six modalities studied.
