Driver Less Vision, an installation at the 2017 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism by Guillermo Fernandez-Abascal, Urtzi Grau and Daniel Perlin, is an immersive 3D video experience comprised of spatial scans of Seoul, projected into a dome and paired with surround sound. The supporting audio is the internal monologue of a personified autonomous vehicle, driving through the streets of a future Seoul, Korea. The installation transports vierers to the front seat of the autonomous vehicle, providing a new perspective of traversing cities—through the car’s point of view. Driver Less Vision was a response to the Seoul Biennale's theme of "Imminent Commons," which asks questions about what will become of cities and the role they play for both the individual and the collective. The installation takes recent discussions of what autonomous vehicles will mean for society and combines it with the potential technology has for interacting with humans. Driver Less Vision explores some of the urban obstructions an autonomous vehicle might encounter to reveal ways this can affect autonomous mobility and the future built environment.
