"Bike Stories," by Rey Daoed is comprised of a light structure and a series of time lapse videos available for viewing at Downtown Park.
The lighted neon structure is a tribute to Marymoor Park, the site where the artist first learned how to ride a bike.
The projected image is a series of time lapse video painting of the artist and his process, documenting a cyclist journey. The series titles are: "That is my bike!", "The story of a regular bike deconstructed to be an adaptive bike", and "Cyclists - The Big Day".
The artists invites the community to share their own bike stories #bikestories #redmondlights2021 #cyclistsofinstagram
