American Trip Road
I collect old slides, films and pictures. In my search I rarely come across images or footage of African Americans. It reflects the condition of an entire culture living in the shadows of the dominant culture. It's as if they'd been edited out. I created American Trip Road for an Installation at the Historic Texas Theater, Dallas in the summer of 2010. I re-edited the classic American road trip to include families that lived and travelled the same roads but were rarely recorded.
