My most recent installation is an exploration of  the American Road trip, a patriotic exploration loaded with centuries of  conflict and struggle. Since our country's beginning, there has been a  desire to create an empire spanning a continent. Lewis and Clark opened  the west for exploration. Manifest Destiny proclaimed that the land was  ours to tame. And in the modern era Dwight D. Eisenhower's interstate  highway system, built primarily for defense, paved the whole country for  us all. As we spread our country westward we have displaced groups of  people and destroyed the land. This installation is a critique of the  icon status of the American road trip while proposing questions  regarding the consequences of our expansion
