Laura Bouman grew up among vehicles. Cars, motorcycles, they always have been there. Her relatives, friends and herself were driving them or tinkering on them - as if they were technical extensions of their bodies. The oil stains on the carpet, the greasy fingerprints on the door handles and her father’s damaged hand are a constant reminder that people deal with machines and their maintenance on a daily basis.
This comes together in the publication Fuel. In a playful and uncomplicated manner, Laura conducts research into the relationship between the human(body), animal and the vehicle that takes us further. Both physically and mentally. Fuel is an auto-ethnographical pre-research of an ongoing project about the vehicle. In this publication you can find different stories and images that connect to the world of the vehicle.See more: laurabouman.com/rust-roest
