in the city of bratislava, slovakia, czech artist tomáš moravec has fixed wheels to a standartized europallet, fitting it between existing tram lines and taking it for a spin down the street. the wooden platform — a basic feature of any warehouse — has been reinterpreted as a functioning vehicle, giving a totally new purpose to the shipping unit.
moravec describes that ‘the new transport vehicle brings change into the spatial perspective of a passenger in motion and generally changes the life of the city, through which the pallet can run,guided by a map of the city lines.’
