“Ah, the road trip, that quintessential American activity. This flag book focus is on the seductiveness of the man-made auto environment, and how our drive to keep moving isolates us from the sensory impact of just ‘being’ in a place. The interior reveals a southwestern landscape through rear-view mirrors. On a closer inspection, staccato phrases from the car interior contrast with phonetic words that slowly explore the exterior environment. The outside of the book shows a parked car and a rich, inviting place – our reward for having stopped to smell the roses.” -- Artist's statement.
