A shared interest for biking, China and camping was the reason why I came across the Camper Bike project of New York based Kevin Cyr. What started as a series of paintings developed into an awesome functional sculpture and a crazy bike/camping adventure in China. You can find out more about it here.
But when I read an interview with him about a recent project: Camper Kart. I was even more impressed. The Camper Kart was inspired by the haunting Pullitzer Prize winning book ‘The Road’ by Cormac McCarthy, the story of a father and son pushing around their belongings in a shopping cart. The Camper Kart is a small pop-up camper built on top of a shopping cart, where you can pack your belongings and sleep in.
Is it an accusation, a solution or a anti-consumerism statement? Among other things, it IS a great idea!
