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. The topic vehicle comes together in a interdisciplinaire practice. In a playful and uncomplicated manner, Laura conducts research into the relationship between the human and the vehicle.
