Bus Stop Theory: Experiencing the Banal

Bus Stop Theory is quotidian study into the various everyday dimensions of bus stops in the built environment. Engaging with the design of bus stops and a number of political and philosophical ideas that surround the increasing shift toward the commodification of public space, the work uses the bus stop as a kind of prism through which the unsteady modernization of everyday life can be focused.
