Straight from the Minibar
The hotel room. A classic by-product experience of the traveler. Confronted with excessive hotel room exposure I had to channel the experience, it had gotten suppressive, overwhelming. Spending the days meticulously polishing hotel rooms to be photographed for advertising my evenings and nights turned into a vent. Often fueled by red wine I documented the rooms in use, the way a room really looks like when occupied. I had to tip the balance on the scale to a neutral, where reality was keeping the constructed in check.
