suckerPUNCH: Describe your project:
Erin CUEVAS: While the automobile has evolved to fit the desires of drivers, infrastructure has remained static. Rather than fostering a proper environment for the contemporary mobile lifestyle, infrastructure instead produces a monotonous and often irritating experience of driving—especially during traffic. Is it possible for infrastructure to function the same was as cars, as an extension of the driver’s body and identity?
The project aims to generate a close relationship between drivers and their surrounding infrastructure—one that is as intimate as the connection between drivers and their cars.
