Domesticated Machine

Title

Domesticated Machine

Description

"The automobile developed analogously to the bourgeois home, becoming a site for ‘dwelling within the car’ rather than ‘dwelling on the road’. [...] technical, safety and design increments added up to a cumulative change that was nothing short of revolutionary when considered in terms of its social consequences."
