Reinventing the Wheel

art traffic mobility


Reinventing the Wheel will be a two week long artist in residency program during December. A public exhibition of the works accompanied by a program of events will occur on 15 December. Five or six artists will be asked to develop projects in reaction to the traffic in Sibiu, and the constant movement of cars and trucks through the urban landscape that is both a benefit and burden for the city and its inhabitants. Traffic entering Sibiu's old town has been successfully regulated, and an infrastructure of one way and restricted streets has slowed down cars and minimized use of the roads. The system within the newer town, however, has not changed and it continues to be an overbearing aspect of the urban fabric.
