Sponsored by Lear Corporation, through a collaboration with a BFA Transportation design student, the goal of this project was to design for 2030 autonomous interior and surface material concept based around the idea of a subscription model business plan, where shared autonomous vehicles are available on-demand to consumers.
Upon entering MoMA, visitors grab maps and spend their time at the museum “darting from one masterpiece to the next, battling crowds, exhaustion and hunger.[...] But what if we slowed down?” -Stephanie Rosenbloom- What if we spent more time with one masterpiece that draws us in, in a quiet environment to really see it? Beyond transportation, artonomous encourages users to use their commute time to connect with highly curated masterpieces in a peaceful environment with no rush. MoMa, as a cultural organization, “has had a long history of events aimed at helping busy New Yorkers slow down” -Maggie Lyko- and with the same mission, artonomous creates a mobile art platform that takes them on an eye and mind opening experience beyond the boundary of everyday life.
