Kevin Cyr, a Brooklyn-based designer and artist, opened his new mobility and shelter-themed exhibition, 'Home In The Weeds', this last month at 941 Geary in San Francisco. Cyr is the artist who designed and built the fantastic human-powered campers, Camper Kart and Camper Bike, as a way to explore human powered movement and shelter with a vintage aesthetic.

Is the need for aluminum and particle board to keep the bugs out? And hauling that port-house behind a bike…how far are you going? The old “tear-drop” camper would be less wind drag don’t you think?
