Bus boxes consist of a square collage of data that can be folded into the form of an origami water bomb. As the paper folds, different images, interview excerpts, observations and ideas intersect and new combinations are made. The bus box is an experiment in translation; a physical manifestation of the from the 73 Urban Journeys blog and website.
There are two versions: on the bus route and on the bus. As per the double method of folding this means that each version creates two different finished cubes, enabling multiple ways of interacting with the data.
Bus boxes have been used at a range of events as a means of moving ‘beyond text’. They offer an alternate way of engaging interdisciplinary audiences with key themes emerging in the research.
