Is merely the idea of experiencing nature enough?

Wide open spaces are promised by the SUV but are rarely sought. Two characters are photographed living inside of their SUV. Their collection of blue and green manufactured household are car items are arranged in the setting, subconsciously referencing nature and the outdoors. This, paired with the idea that automobiles are our second home protecting us from the elements, provides a mental space for the audience. Household chores such as sweeping are juxtaposed with the dramas of the human condition: love, humor, life and death. The influence of gesture from Baroque painting and sculpture assists in the creation of psychologically charged and contemplative dramas. Inside the four walls of their vehicle or 'one story' dwelling we wonder if they are fully comfortable venturing beyond its solace and protection.
