The idea of motels and what they entail has always fascinated me. A temporary stop during a road trip, a place to do what you might not want to or can't do at home, motels have a constant flux of different characters moving in and out, sleeping night after night in the same bed, watching the same tv. I'm interested in the narratives that exist in these places: the mystery, drama, and even the mundanity.
Check In is a photograph of one of my motel sculptures, taken outside in the early evening. In this image, I wanted to capture the basic essence of arriving to a motel at the end of a long day's drive, ready to check in and relax for awhile.
