Driving alone is about finding a specific headspace, not thinking about anything yet thinking about everything all at once. My piece Six Hours and One Minute and 382.7 Miles is about finding that space, fueled by the endless counting down till that final destination roles into view. This book was created using InDesign software, printed onto beige paper, and hand painted with golden decals. I also transferred maps onto the page. The book is double sided, a solemn journey with two endings. To me, these drives are a ritual, a pilgrimage.
RiTUAL. A ceremonial act ~ Rites used in the course of worship ~ The performance of ceremonial acts ~ The prescribed form of conducting the ceremony ~ A method of procedure that is followed without variation ~ performance with gestures, words, and objects, often in a sequestered place.
