Three vehicles are photographed in front of three different backgrounds. Their original use would be the transportation of their user to a different location. In these pictures though they remain still and yet active, as the logo designed on them has now become a means of transport. The viewer, through the free mobile application AURASMA can use them for a digital relocation on the web. What kind of information is encrypted though? While the vehicle originally would take its user wherever they would chose, now it is the artist that has decided the virtual relocation of the viewer, commenting on the secret and censored internet information.
