Future Cycles Deployment
Cameron Van Dyke (MFA 2015)
The Future Cycles is a multi disciplinary project that includes the design and creation of experimental vehicles, short films, and public deployments as a way toÊencourageÊpublic imagination in regard to transportation. Born from the realization that the American infrastructure will far outlive the practicality of our energy inefficient vehicles, the Future Cycles project encourages American car drivers to visualize an alternative reality where citizens regain personal agency in their transportation choices. In this new reality individuals will create their own smaller and lighter vehicles that are much more energy and material efficient.
