“The car has become the carapace, the protective and aggressive shell of urban and suburban man” Marshall McLuhan
Post-industrial societies are societies of isolation, full of lonely entities, forming a spectacle that is both plethoric and verbose. The car as the dominant and fully individualized form of transportation is a symbol of the fully automated and intensified construction of everyday life. It is a closed space of privacy. A steel cage inside of which the fantasy of escape falters.
