CLEAN ROOMS. LOW RATES.

32.00

CLEAN ROOMS. LOW RATES. is by Massachusetts-based writer Jeff Parker and UK-based photographer Brendan Barry. Over the past few years Barry has logged 22,000 miles driving back and forth across the US, photographing, among other things, empty hotel rooms. Inspired by the history of motels in some of the greatest stories of all time, Jeff Parker provided fictional texts to go with a selection of these photographs.

CLEAN ROOMS. LOW RATES. is a collaborative, cross-genre exploration of the American motel. Standing at the intersection of economics, aesthetics, poetry, sculpture, documentation, and fiction, CLEAN ROOMS. LOW RATES. sheds light on the problematic character of seemingly ordinary things. By playfully and collaboratively immersing ourselves in a private-turned-public and mundane-turned-psychedelic space, especially one as aesthetically charged and culturally specific as a motel room, we allow ourselves to experience and examine the myth of the American dream.
