This project, in a form of a ride through Munich, focuses on the ideology of driving and the shift that it is currently experiencing. From the idea of I drive, associated with individualism, capitalism, and the idea of freedom represented by the automobile, to I am being driven, which embodies the mindset of Silicon Valley as it seeks to outsource numerous daily tasks in order to make life easier and smarter. Whereas we previously surrendered to our egos, we now surrender directly to cognitive networks controlled by a handful of corporations. Our passivity stands in opposition to the necessary democratization of new technological systems – a constructive, slow, and continuous process.
