Bicycle owner makes use of GPS monitoring to recreate Nevermind album artwork

The homage to Nirvana’s groundbreaking Nevermind has been plentiful last week as fans celebrated the album’s 30th anniversary. But one fan got really creative and managed to recreate Nevermind’s album artwork by using GPS tracking to map a bike route into their picture.

The fan is Pete Stokes, an Australian cyclist and national park manager who discovered a passion for creating GPS tracking works of art on his bike tours. To recreate the famous work of art that depicts a baby swimming in a pool of water just out of reach of a dollar bill, Stokes cycled 150 km through the streets of Adelaide City on an eight-hour ride. He used his Strava exercise app to create the route.

“Anyway, released thirty years ago today. Still kicking the ass, ”Stokes added for a caption.

Explaining why the record meant so much to him, Stokes told the Guardian, “When this album came out I was in high school – I was about 14 and that’s where you develop your love for music.”

Stokes has shown his artistic streak in a variety of GPS-assisted creations, including the celebration of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album cover, the greeting of classical icon Beethoven, and more. “That’s all I like at the time. Nirvana has its place in my record collection, ”he explained. Stokes posted his GPS creations on his Pete.The.R4bbit Instagram page.
