Popeyed With Awe (from Passages), 2010
Archival Pigment Print, Dimensions Variable
In this series I utilized excerpts from Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" as source material for orchestrated drives on Wisconsin's alphabetical county trunk highway system. Using GPS technology to track each drive, newly generated line drawings emerge as evidence of Kerouac’s text being written in the landscape. I am interested in the (dis)connection between Kerouac's era and my present day as it pertains to spontaneous acts and the sensation of freedom.
