Life On Wheels
(4 channel video, 32min)
The car. So familiar, so entwined in American life that it's not merely an indispensable tool but an inextricable feature of our cultural history. Through a combination of multiple projections and a scale model highway representing the intrusion of the Interstate into the natural landscape, the Hodge's installation of Life on Wheels aims to incite contemplation more than action. It encourages visitors to reflect on the roles cars play in our lives and to consider what our dependence on them means in the most basic terms.
Shown Sept 18-Dec 6, 2015 at de Saisset Museum
