Artists and brothers Ivan Puig and Andres Padilla Domene were the masterminds responsible for SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe project. SEFT-1 or Sonda de Exploración Ferroviaria Tripulada was an interactive, interdisciplinary art project that explored disused railway lines and their historical importance, as well as their social implications.
As a road and rail vehicle, the creation by Mexican artists, who collectively went by the name of Los Ferronautas was designed to explore the uninhibited and abandoned railways of Ecuador and Mexico. Throughout the journey, SEFT-1 captured videos, photos and even collected various objects. The interactive art project did an excellent job of exploring the human patterns of technological dependence, the end result of which appeared to be both a utility and waste.
