Scope and content

With an area of over 450 sq. miles and more than 6000 miles of roadways, LA is a hard city to wrap your head around. Eric Boisvert designed Relay and the Metropologue in response to the question How can media designers inform, relate, and contextualize an environment that is so out of human scale? Relay is a unique cell phone based application that spontaneously matches drivers with potential riders going to the same location. (Description from the Media Design Program website.)
