"Out the Box" is a new media project broadcasting filmed texts, streamed live and to a limited audience.

Only a limited number of pre-registered attendees will get to watch each live video. The performances will not be broadcast on social media, or recorded for later viewing -- you have to be there if you want to see something new.

A community of truckers in a small town in Iowa are forced to shift gears when they lose their jobs to self-driving vehicles. When Gloria becomes the only trucker in town still employed, resentments begin to surface. Tensions escalate as they grapple with a mystery: Haygen, a driver with close ties to all of them, has disappeared. Set in a future not far down the road, DRIVE explores our collective fears surrounding the next stage of automation and what happens when individuals in a country where we’re so defined by our work are forced to reevaluate what drives them.
