ON NOV 28, 2017
In "York Station" Meg Thomas explores the signs and interactions that are normally overlooked a journey through a station. She highlights the commercial takeover of the public space, and the way the passenger is de-prioritised in station design. The hyper-reality of the station space is twisted as the audience is invited to also follow a silent visual story. This undercurrent covers the personal emotions that are digested and processed as a background to everyday life.
Running On Empty
BY SUSAN JOHNSTON
@ VOL 13
ON JUN 28, 2018
The gas station of today is notably different than the filling station of 100 years ago. Through the 20th century, the American gas station has evolved to meet the needs of the consumer and the changing marketplace. In this century there has been a steady decline in the number of gas stations. 80,000 gas stations have shut down.
What does the future hold? Cars and personal transportation are undergoing dramatic change. What will the fueling station look like in 25 years? Or will gas stations go the way of the soda fountain?
In her talk, Susan Johnston will highlight the history of the gas station from its humble origins in 1920 and rapidly move forward to predictions of the fueling station of the future.
