CNN reports that an artist in the Netherlands has created an incredibly beautiful tribute to Vincent van Gogh — an illuminated bike path that glows in the dark.
Inspired by the famed Dutch painter’s “Starry Night” work, artist Daan Roosegaarde teamed up with Heijmans Infrastructure to create the 1-kilometer-long Van Gogh-Roosegaarde cycle path, which opened in the city of Eindhoven on November 13.
The path is illuminated by thousands of twinkling stones that feature glow-in-the-dark technology and solar-powered LED lights.
“I wanted to create a place that people will experience in a special way, the technical combined with experience, that’s what techno-poetry means to me,” said Roosegaarde in a statement.

The collaborators have also been working on a series of “Smart Highways,” a concept that combines light, energy and road signs that react according to the present traffic situation.
