Can you turn the daily commute into more than the gap between home and work?

Daniel Duggan, 42

The central theme is finding adventure in the mundane, of enriching your life by tiny increments. I see a community of souls driving on clotted roads, losing life to the distance travelled. I wondered what lay dormant behind the road locked eyes of strangers and myself. I wrote this in the work car park and on the walk between parking up and getting home. I wanted to see how that journey could be reassigned, to examine the concept of the commute as a waste of time. My work attempts to ignite any sedated traveller into rethinking how they pass through that journey. That time need not be held in confinement; we can roam within it.
