Abandon User!
“Abandon user” is a project that parallels the first autonomous vehicle accident to kill a pedestrian as a navigable virtual tour on Google Street view.
The virtual tour focuses on a users trajectory through an online space, and takes place at the coordinates of the accident. Whether a failure of civic design, or platform architecture, the project reflects the problems of emerging technologies to anticipate disruption in both physical and virtual environments. Using the idea of commerce to lead the user through a series of spherically collaged environments, "Abandon User" is referential of the accident, while collapsing notions of what it means to be in an online space; leading to a form of Abandonment.
