Hacer Visible lo Invisible (Making the Invisible Visible) is a project that observes cyclists' routes in the city and transforms this data into three-dimensional sculptures, which also serve as public bike repair stations. These objects not only enhance the public space and serve as necessary reference points for navigating the city, but also encourage cyclists to observe the movement of bicycles in Quito while fixing their own bike tires. The system consists of (i) a mobile application that records cyclists' circulation throughout the city, (ii) DIY bike counters embedded in public spaces, (iii) bike repair stations as sculptural landmarks, and (iv) a web terminal displaying real-time recreation of the city on a new map. Throughout this intervention, conventional and unconventional tools were employed for data collection (i.e., designed diaries, interviews, surveys, participant trajectory, and observation), and representation (i.e., multicriteria analysis, digital maps, and physical visualizations). This article aims to reflect on the development of a set of interfaces that invite contemplation, imagination, and the construction of a data-driven city based on the specific and collaborative contributions of its inhabitants.
