Lauren Beck BFA General Fine Arts Thesis Fall 2016
Loosely based on real places, but something altogether different from reality, Vacationland began as a large pile of stuff—mostly photographs, roughly divided into three sub-categories:
1) Things I had amassed throughout my own life: photos I’d taken, ticket stubs, souvenirs from trips… A lot of junk really.
2) Things my father had saved from his youth (years spent between Hawaii and the Northwest).
3) Things that had accumulated themselves in the beach house where my mother spent her childhood summers (in a tiny beach town on the Washington peninsula called Grapeview).
