Chronicles of a greyhound gypsy
MetadataShow full item record
stThis project examines 21 century America by exploring and interacting with people in all regions of the country in order to reveal the widely varying attitudes and cultures of a nation. Inspired by Hunter S. Thompson and his style of Gonzo journalism, I rode 14,026 miles on Greyhound buses in 67 days through 39 states. Through the processes of autoethnography, I put myself in situations that force me to examine my own thoughts and opinions. I experience first hand a complicated country that is rapidly changing as technology booms and war rages. I share my thoughts, feelings and perceptions without any conscious self-censorship. The arenas I find myself in include politics, race, the class system, poverty, war and capitalism.
