Installation and urban intervention in public space

Italian artist Patrick Tuttofuoco produced a series of publicly accessible bicycles which had billboards attached, reflecting the desires of a group of friends from a choir in the Basque town of Tolosa. The billboards announced fictional encounters and love stories between private citizens and public icons, in a playful look at a new possible future.
