Bus rides were experienced daily when we were sourcing materials and techniques for this collection; we would happily commute from town to town collaborating, learning and sharing stories with the locals. Those endless bus rides that most people dread were an amazing experience within itself.
Being the most ecologically diverse country in the world; Ecuador sure knew how to put on a good show through my bus window with its ever-changing landscapes.
Many of the buses were draped with what appeared to be performance curtains; those that were a deep red, velvet with stray tassels flowing with the motion of the bus. The landscapes were like snippets from a magical storybook creatively pieced together to seamlessly match the story you’d conjure while watching it roll by.
A beautiful country even through the view of a bus window.
