Cars That Float.
Cars That Float is a collection of photographs that takes a look at the future we always imagined. Against the backdrop of urban decay, each floating car serves as a surrogate for what could have been if our fascination with inventing the future didn’t move way for short-term innovation.
The future has been invented and reimagined time and time again. From film, literature and popular culture, through to altruistic urban planning and the unbuildable designs of technological provocateurs. It’s safe to say, the future has a long history of taking on new forms within the human imagination.
Whether prophecy, speculation or simple entertainment, these visions have infiltrated our collective consciousness, setting grand expectations for the world in which we live in. Let’s face it – what we ended up with is a little disappointing. Where are our flying cars? Our hoverboards? Our conflict-free utopia?
