Flash Drive – Mobile photography education unit

Houston Center for Photography enlisted us to brand and rework an existing ambulance into a mobile educational outreach unit whose mission is “to inspire and heal through the merger of arts and health”. It includes two camera obscuras built into the side of the vehicle, a digital editing suite, projector, high def screens, and bluetooth networking devices.

The Flash Drive rolled out in the 2014 ArtCar Parade.
