Artist Daan Roosegaarde pays homage to the most famous resident that once lived in the Dutch town of Eindhoven. This is such a creative way to pay tribute to the artist Vincent Van Gogh. Roosegaarde created a glowing bike path that relies on solar-powered LED lights and interprets his classic painting Starry Night.
