Tucked under the trees
in a campground near Gig Harbor, Washington
Is a most unusual RV.
At first glance, this fifth wheel appeared to resemble any of the thousand others I’ve seen in campgrounds.
But what I noticed upon turning the bend on the roadway inspired a l o n g e r … second look.
The unexpected gallery of images, statuary, and knickknacks
caused me to break a code of common courtesy…
and, I began to stare.
All sides of the RV are whimsically embellished with “Objects de dialogue.” Could this be a new genre of art?
Robust conversation-starters are mounted permanently on the sides of this travel trailer. The artist, a gentleman named Eric, told me he installs objects with “stronger than Liquid Nails” glue.
None of the pieces are removed for travel. All stay in place at campgrounds and on the road.
Come rain or shine, interstate or back-roads and byways… Eric’s imaginative collections stand ready to launch dialogue amongst themselves and with curious travelers passing by.
The potential for engaging conversational exchanges erupts all over this most unusual RV.
You are invited to imagine any two of my photographs next to each other, and to discover how
each photograph opens up meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.
I wonder what will your choices say to one another?
What will they say to you?
… will you answer back?
