1834 Roller Rider at Toronto the Good Party

Engaging attendees in a virtual bike ride through Toronto's streets then and now

Created by: Patrick Dinnen, Michael Pereira.

A stationary bike controlled video installation to celebrate Toronto’s 175th birthday at the annual Toronto the Good party thrown by Spacing Magazine and ERA Architects to celebrate Toronto and its people.

Partygoers rode their way through a map of 1834 Toronto while rider’s-eye-view video footage of those same streets in modern Toronto played in sync with their pedaling. Giving a tangible (and fun) experience of how the street grid of 1834 overlaps with the city we know today.
