Critical Design

Transport has always been an interesting mirror on society, but what if you were to purposefully design a vehicle to move inefficiently? In collaboration with Edinburgh-based designer Neil McGuire and working in teams to produce the future (or perhaps not) of personal transportation technology, we were asked to design an inefficient method of moving fifteen cubic meters of foam across the ECA (Edinburgh College of Art) campus.


What matters not is the solution, but how it works and the processes undertaken. Two kids bikes, fixed and strung to a caddy that balances precariously the foam cargo, is pedalled incredibly awkwardly- with not any foam dropped.
