“Yet some how the suburb managed to impose its own logic. In architecture and landscape, essential dualism, both spatial and temporal, were denied...And buried not far beneath the surface of its apparent uniformity lie distinctions that depend less on origin then on activity.” - Visions of Suburbia
We function and exist in our day-to-day lives as a part of multiple communities. Often our everyday life becomes so familiar that we do not take notice of the activities that we participate in and the structural environment around us, or question the role that they have in our lives. The routine of driving is one common activity in communities. As a driver you are constantly attentive to what is happening around you, trying to get somewhere and predicting the moves of other drivers. What happens when there is a break in that awareness? Still stuck in the car, in a seat, I am looking at what is happening when we are stopped at a light or in traffic. Do we just sit and stare ahead, have a conversation, or see what is happening around us? I am documenting what is happening in my rearview mirror, looking at the actions occurring behind my car while I am waiting.
