Magic ritual to trap autonomous cars

Artist James Bridel designed a trapping ritual for an autonomous car as a way to bring deeper questions around autonomous cars. His interview on Vice gives a glimpse of his thought process and approach to the human artificial intelligence interactions. The humor is there, political stance is there. Here’s an excerpt from the interview. 

“The Trap falls into the category of resistance, while the attempt to build my own car is a process of understanding how the dominant narratives of these technologies are produced, and could be changed. I don’t see why cab drivers of the future shouldn’t be chalking white lines on side streets to derail self-driving Ubers which are putting them out of work, and I also think we need more eyes and hands on the tools which are shaping all of our futures.”
