The visible man – Visible can mean safe and fun

85% of accidents on both wheels are caused by motorists who have not seen them. How to be more visible while being safe?

Failing to find a security outfit iridescent like a peacock, my cousin decided to customize his scooter and accessories to be more visible, more his own style.

With what we can find in store, he decorated his scooter as if to promote a circus, he says. Most reflective stickers are not a bundle of laughs. But, by arranging them well, it can be fun… And then, the dark side of the force, gives it a little virility. But the Tinker Bell makes him think he’s driving a scooter for a 14-year-old girl. The Tinker bell inspires  protection because she is always ready to do anything to save Peter Pan; and what’s great, she flies! That’s magic! And what is magical is that thanks to the stickers, the scooter attracts attention and suddenly, it really increases my cousin’s protection.

This is my cousin’s experience:

“When I pass a motor-biker who is on his phone, I double him and he stops immediately to admire me”.

“Now I’ve become very visible even maybe a little too much, everyone is looking at me”

“At the roundabout, motor-bikers are struck by Tinker Bell. Instead of their usual existential question (I leave him the priority even if it is a two-wheeler?), their eyes are sticking on the stickers and I parade like a model on the catwalk.”

“At the office the security guards smile at me and open the barriers in advance, I save time!”

“I’m going to hang out with the same commuters for a long time and they’ll quickly recognize me, remember that I’m respectful of other road users and relax their driving attitude”.

“You have to find out what you can’t know before you know you can’t, don’t you? (…) The point is people must think, people must go on thinking, they must try to extend the boundaries of knowledge and they don’t sometimes even know where to start. You don’t know where the boundaries are, do you?” Stephen Hawking’s mother, Isobel Hawking Walker, in A brief history of time – Errol Morris (documentary film 1991).

“Schwartz wanted to write a song for the film wherein Pocahontas confronts the Eurocentrism of John Smith. “Colors of the Wind” was the first song written for Pocahontas. According to Schwartz, the song “influence[d] the development of the rest of the film.” Schwartz said that “a story-board outline was in place before we wrote [the track]. This is often the process in animation, at least as I’ve experienced it, where everybody works from an outline and each succeeding piece of material, whether it is a song or drawings, influences the next.”The track was inspired by Native American poetry, music and folklore, as well as a famous letter sent to the United States Congress by Chief Seattle regarding humanity’s relationship with nature. Part of the letter reads: “The wind that gave our grandfather his first breath also received his last sigh.The wind also gives our children the spirit of life. So if we sell our land, you must keep it apart and sacred, as a place where man can go to taste the wind that is sweetened by the meadow flowers.” This portion of the letter inspired the song’s title, which Schwartz liked because he saw it as paradoxical and thought-provoking.”
