What My Mac Reads to Me – plus INGREDIENTS OF A SUBWAY CAR installation

INGREDIENTS OF A SUBWAY CAR is a series of drawings, installations, simulations with Unity 3D using the pen and ink drawings, animations, and of course photographs i took of the subway which strangely have nothing to do with my vision for the world i am creating.

The perspective of others is about the perceived reality of others and I am really not fond of news as i much rather listen to smart people pondering odd stuff, it really makes using my organs of hearing all the more worthwhile.
