They all share a philosophy of constantly questioning issues when it comes to global environmental challenges currently facing us all. Sideways: A Smart Art Project assembles a fresh collection of work that evaluates the way in which we think about the environment and mobility by 100 international artists curated by 11 top international magazines. The rich diversity of work from photography, illustration and graphic design to painting, sculpture and architecture presented in this anthology show how we can promote greener modes of transportation and shape our future path in a positive way.
