Autobody 09 (Willie O’Brien) illustrates that the human body is the primary vehicle in which we navigate, cross borders and engage the world. The car functions in a similar way, being a self-contained space that clearly divides the personal from the social. The taxi becomes an extension of Willie’s body. This project is a reminder that the flesh is a border, that the skin is the point we meet the world, and that our daily activities are a constant journey and exploration.
