manned railway exploration probe

SEFT-I is a vehicle equipped with a Hi-Rail system that enables it to move on rails. Mexico’s trains once formed a network of connections between big cities and tiny pueblos throughout the country.This exploratory probe travels abandoned railways using photography, video, audio, and text to record contemporary people, landscape, and infrastructure in largely remote areas of the country, creating a futuristic exploration of Mexico’s past.
