Summary of Project:

Two-Lane Lap Top, shot in the Utah desert in July 2012 and published in 2013 is a reverent tribute that pays homage to Edward Rusha’s 1967 book ‘Royal Road Test’. It recognises the importance of the original work and its significant influence on subsequent art practice. This new work is informed by extensive research and more than four decades of my own practice. It consciously retains the ironic straight faced objectivity and subtle humour of the original publication, the new work incorporates contemporary technology and painstaking methodology in an attempt to achieve a faithful adherence and an innovation reinterpretation.
