On December 2005, my uncle Manuel drove my brother and I down to Mexico for the first time. It was such a great experience that I convinced my dad to drive us down to Mexico one summer. So in the summer of 2007, my dad drove us down to Mexico for a family vacation and he enjoyed it so much that we took another drive down to Mexico the following year. The reason I talk about my family trips is because when I first saw this art work, it brought back memories when my family and I drove down to Guanajuato, Mexico. As we sat in a car for 4 days, my sibling and I would find ways to distract us from the drive. So we would watch movies, play games, eat snacks, and at some point of the day, I would sit in the car and stare at the wind shield, watching the mountains far away from us, and an endless road. That’s exactly what i see in this art piece.
