Running On Empty - L.A. Without Cars



Here's the video by Ross
Ching
, Running On Empty, that Bill
Barol referred to here a couple weeks ago. I think it's a great bit of
provocative future fiction showing the vast topologies of the Los
Angeles roadway infrastructure absolutely free of automotive traffic.
Perhaps a sudden, massive lifestyle change has ended car use. Or a
Peak Oil soft landing, or personal teleportation devices have gone
mainstream, or the Rapture came and somebody lost the list of sinners
and just decided to take everyone... I like to imagine this vision
rolled forward 20 years when vegetation has overtaken all the useless
hardscaping, no doubt matched by some Jumanji-type unleashing of large
fauna across the sprawl.
