DRIVERLESS was designed as part of an installation for the Tokyo Motor Show 2017. Dav and Slain were faced with the challenge of translating a bullet list of Hitachi’s self-driving car features into a VR (virtual reality) specific experience.
For DRIVERLESS, they developed conceptual interpretations for each of Hitachi’s innovations and wove them into a surreal spatial narrative that takes place in a futuristic desertscape.
The abstractions of the features allows each viewer to experience the technology like a dream, conceptually and non-verbally, with plenty of room to discover and imagine.
