DP/AR DEPARTURES AND ARRIVALS
PUBLICATION: Visual Communication,
Volume 3, Number 1
The DP/AR subway ride is a continuum from departure to arrival.
Written as an information narrative, the DP/AR story is part data. Similar to daily life where experience is, increasingly, more data and less object, intimate moments are often transformed into data. The DP/AR narrative is structured as information by repurposing the form of a train timetable.
Through an everyday subway ride, DP/AR is also about global homogenization and patterns of experience - how ubiquity can be a result of technology.
