MFA Products of Design Graduate Thesis
'You Are on the Fastest Route: Intentional Community and Responsible Autonomy in the New Motor Age' is my pending graduate thesis on the impending adoption of autonomous vehicles into everyday American life. In it, I study the history of the first motor age; the progressive optimism of its first decades, and the slow realization of its hidden costs. The thesis will showcase my design work around autonomous vehicles, a technology I hope will be able to undo some of the harm our present car culture causes every day.
The document below is a preliminary midterm draft of the thesis in which I detail my early design work and thinking.
