MA work

I want to break down the shell of the car to make it penetrable for the emotions and bring people together.

The Attention-seeker car will create freedom to communicate with the environment and give the driver the possibility to interact with the world around him; to express his feelings and deliver a message. I am talking about a non-verbal communication, for example, as in the courtship behaviour of animals or the body language of human beings.

To enable the car to show different emotions the driver is able to transform some parts of the car such as the air intakes, the lights, the wheel arches and the special second skin of the car.
