Solar-Powered Glowing Bicycle Path Inspired By Van Gogh’s Starry Night
Inspired by Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting, this swirling bicycle path is the creative work of Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde and his team of designers and engineers. Located in Brabant, where Van Gogh was born and raised, the kilometer-long surface is covered with a special paint that charges in daylight to glow after dark, and LEDs connected to nearby solar panels to cast extra light for when the weather is cloudy.

"It's a new total system that is self-sufficient and practical, and just incredibly poetic.", says Roosegaarde.
