"Lost In Transit"
by Genevieve Hastings
This interactive installation includes a 1959 Volvo PV544 and a 1970 A-frame Chalet trailer. Participants are welcome to explore inside the vehicles as scenery rolls on a video loop outside. The installation is comprised of edited found videos from internet sources archived in cabinets and suitcases, photographs, layered maps, postcards, an interactive olfactory station, several audio stations containing road trip stories from members of the community, and much more.
Information technology is changing the immediacy, availability, and archivability of information. This piece makes use of old home movies and current stories about road trips to address how past generations imagined the future, and how future generations will interact with the past.
