01/08/08 Open & closed communities / Athens, GA

The difference between college towns like Athens, GA and tourist communities like Daytona Beach are night and day, open and closed. I must have archived close to 30 mantras on College Ave in Athens. There were plenty of curious folks ranging from the homeless, to students, to prospective students, to professors, to musicians. Many people approached me, eager to find out what the deal was with the trailer. In stark contrast to the suspicious rejection of the trailer in Daytona Beach, I began to wonder about people on vacation and the need to be in control in unfamiliar territory.

Many thanks to my awesome hosts Chris Hubbard, the creator of the Heaven and Hell Art Car and Susan Staley.
