Mark Wilson at fastcodesign shows us how French artist Bufalino Benedetto has created a dreamy, Jetson-eque installation by rigging a camper to a hydraulic lift:
Benedetto’s dream creation is really just a camper affixed to a hydraulic scissor lift. It’s not even furnished, though apparently a passenger can go along for the ride. Still, seeing that trailer float above the treeline is inspiring in the most plebeian of ways. Maybe that’s because it’s nostalgic of a future seen through eyes of the past–one before microchips and touch screens invaded our creativity, one in which you only needed to proper alchemy of motors, robotic arms, and conveyor belts to solve any problem.
