Glow in the dark bike lane inspired by Van Gogh

Inspired by Van Gogh’s painting Starry Night

van gogh painting the starry nightLast night I visited the glow in the dark bike lane, in Nuenen the Netherlands. Inspired by Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” last night, this innovation was made by Studio Roosengaarde and Heijmans. They also made the glowing lines on smart highway.  For about 600 meters thousands of tiny stones absorb sunlight during the day and glow at night. At some areas there are small blacklights that give these luminescent stones an extra ‘boost’.
