There are times when i have to drive around where ever i am and find these other pictures that are my refuge from people. This is when i do the real thinking about my life. But i can't do it really well, this thinking, without driving around and taking pictures of things. Some of these pictures end up getting framed and sold and hang on peoples walls. So, my refuge turns into their refuge.
This show was about getting married. I had been bicoastal for almost a decade, going where i wanted, when i wanted. i had no responsibilities to anyone and then i fell in love. all i wanted was to be tied down, manhandled, contained. These pictures are about mediated nature. there are some missing as the scans were old and bad. but i wanted you to see the gist.
TRAVEL FOR THE ADVENTUROUS AND SELF-INVOLVED
tom sachs and i did a road trip from milan to marrakech. it turned out to be the month before i met my now husband, making it the last thing i did as a single lady. we made a book of it that summer and then got distracted with other things. now, looking back, the book became this artifact that is more interesting with the passage of time. this was just pre-iphone, and if you think about it, the iphone totally changed travel for all of us. i guess now it feels like a testament to our rapidly changing world and highlights the eternal challenges of being alone in other countries. the book is a mixture of text and drawings and maps and charts and graphs. oh and lists. and yes. lots of photos. we finally published it in 2015.
