After Michelle Nugent, a half-Filipino-American, took her first trip to the Phillippines and noticed how they got around, she had an idea.
Now a community arts student at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Nugent made a pedicab from an old children’s bike, a wooden chair, a handrail, some PVC pipe and cardboard. She decorated it with recycled paper bags, Coca-Cola cans and soda boxes (and one National Bohemian beer box), potato chip bags and other materials. Her intention with The Pedicab Project is to give people in Baltimore free rides in exchange for stories, which she will record and re-purpose to share with others. To learn more about The Pedicab Project, watch the video below the gallery.
