design and drive your own food truck!

Food Truckin’ is an art installation that lets visitors customize their own food delivery vehicles and role-play transportation and distribution.

Jason’s project lets participants design, steer, load up vehicles, and explore how trucks “drive” the food industry. National and international food industry networks make it possible to eat just about any kind of food in the United States. Not only can you get fresh fruits and vegetables year round, you can also find ethnic and international foods in grocery stores. This access to a wide variety of foods is made possible by a complex system of farmers, food processors, distributors, and retailers. Much of the food moved around this country is made possible by trucks criss crossing our nation via highways.

  • Customize your own food truck with components from the garage and signs to advertise your food items.
  • Load up your food trucks and drive it around.
  • Set up your food truck to exchange or sell your items to others.
