This sketchbook was inspired by the idea of freedom becoming less and less of a commodity as our lives are increasingly being controlled by things we determine we "need". Items that spy on us, that which we freely hand over our personal lives too and that we replace annually (or more frequently). The prevalence of choosing exorbitant things to own and then toss away, over helping our community demonstrates how much we value life today.
I chose to use the idea of teenage train riders, its own subculture, to tell my story juxtaposed with an outlook on life from Chris McCandless.
I used glyphs and symbols picked from actual records of transients and nomads that were used to convey information about homes, paths, and areas in a secret language that reminded me of how emoticons are used now.
I hope you enjoy it!
