Transforming A School Bus Into A Lab For Sustainable Living
Artists Felicia Ballos and Ray Roy talk to PSFK about embarking on a mobile and eco-friendly journey, with a little help from technology and friends.
A few months ago, Felicia Ballos and Ray Roy were faced with several major life challenges, namely: the birth of their first child Bowie and dealing with difficult New York living conditions. Opting for more sustainable and mobile living conditions, Ray and Felicia have turned a school bus into a multipurpose home, movie theater, and performance venue. However, their journey, which they are currently filming as a documentary, and new home is not just about a lifestyle change; rather, the bus operates as a potential prototyping lab for many potentially sustainable ideas using open source software/hardware from Arduino to Makerbots.
