When one considers recreational vehicles there is a fascinating multitude of designs, configurations, and equipment. Some are sleek aerodynamic glittering aluminum containers that epitomize corporate high technology and proclaim wealth. While others are rough homemade inbred affairs with things bolted on every which way and proclaim self sufficiency, a transient existence, and self sufficiency.
RVs are paradoxical. RV’s are all about traveling to new places and experiences while being able to bring all the comforts and conveniences of the places you’re escaping from. It’s about going on a journey while transporting your place intact. RVs represent a mobile form of a stable environment. They are a reflection of an itinerant culture’s reluctant to abandon its comforts and technology. The RV facilitates transportation and the crossing over into new frontiers while providing a space and the technology the traveler assumes will be absent without the vehicle. It is a product of technological change while being a vessel of permanence.
In our project we desire to create a space, facilitate experience, and transport students out of the mundane vulgar educational environments and into a world in which they can create and spiritually travel.
