Artist Thomas Yang designed world maps that re-imagine the standard map and fits it into the shape of a bicycle.
The 'Tour de World' map was created to demonstrate how people from all over the world can and should come together to use one of the most environmentally friendly forms of transportation -- biking. The striking image is a representation of the individual act of riding a bike turning into a global practice that strengthens the "green movement" and promotes eco-friendly and cost-effective methods of transportation.
The important message that comes with these world maps has clearly resonated with people, as the maps are currently sold out. By imagining an artistic representation that has come together to represent this movement, the artist hopes to send the message that this is possible in reality as well.
