Mobile Research Lab

Step by step we improve our mobile lab – the Ford Transit transporter van (the name is the program) and the trailer. Inside the van we started to install a mobile exhibition, which we use as triggers for conversations. But we also use the big load capacity on our research trips to collect artifacts. The trailer we designed as s spatial grid and sub-construction in order to attach white panels which are stored – like a sketch-book – in the yellow box. During interviews on the respective site we draw large-scale live mappings on the...

Besides we want to experience this route the main argument for taking this route as for so many others is to avoid a long delay at the border – since we don’t have to leave the...
