Bodies, wheels and flashing lights – everyone is in your way! Someone’s fast, someone’s tired, someone’s late. 

RUSNINGEN captures the struggle in the bike lane and the slightly chaotic atmosphere during rush hour. Inspired by these everyday moments, we created a playful mural to cheer up the commuting people passing by.

We wanted to integrate the figures into the fence, therefore the standard green that Trafikverket uses became our starting point when setting the color scheme.

RUSNINGEN was commissioned by Trafikverket in 2019 as a part of Planksidan, an ongoing project where artists are invited to create a piece for the construction site fences of Västlänken. The mural measures 4 x 20 metres and is located at Packhusplatsen in the centre of Gothenburg.
