A collaboration with artist Laura Hughes, for Locust Projects in Miami, FL. Living on opposite sides of the country, we used our personal interests and connection with the state of Colorado as a midpoint for collaboration and sharing experience. Using car culture as a thematic trend we both respond to, Laura fabricated objects inspired by car interiors that also mimic some simple aspects of the landscape and I created two small podiums as tributes to the French female racecar driver Michele Mouton, who won the 1985 Pike's Peak hill climb in an Audi Quattro S1. On the wall is a large mylar banner that has the word 'RACE TO THE CLOUDS' cut out of it. This is the nickname for the Pike's Peak climb. Also, thinking about the detritus that gets stuck between seat cushions during a road trip, we took walks during our install time, where we collected street litter, including club bracelets, a lighter, cigarette stubs, foil and chipped car reflectors and cast them into resin in molds made from actual rocks- thus creating a simplified version of a landscape.
