This project began in the summer months of 2006, after road trips in New England and along the west coast, documenting my travels with digital photographs and blog entries. I became interested in thinking about blogging as virtual travel writing, authenticating my experiences much like sending postcards or buying souvenirs might. Over the next several months, the project evolved into a gallery floor installation, a postcard, an interactive website, and a semester later, into digital prints and a video sequence. The distance in time and space from those original travel experiences became part of the project, embodied in the way it was created, installed, and disseminated. I was interested then and now in creating a setting for the possibility of narrative, both within and beyond the space of the gallery.
