Alex WOODHOUSE & Leah ZALDUMBIDE: Desert Driftbot investigates the prospect of an alternative, event-driven, nomadic society, fleeing the overbearing,cosmopolitan lifestyle of urbanity in favor of a simplified yet profound way of living. Seeking respite from a culture of extreme density, poor air quality, automotive dependence, materialism and ownership, this nomadic civilization has emerged in the barren desertscape of the Salton Sea.
