Whether youve visited every country from Australia to Zaire or your idea of a vacation involves lounging on the couch with a microwave pizza in one hand and the controls to Halo: Reach in the other, local artist Jon Totel hopes his travel collages will inspire you. I am interested in the extraordinary events that interrupt an otherwise monotonous day, he says. I hope when someone looks at my work, they are not only inspired to seek out new places, but that they may see something in it that sparks a memory of a previous adventure in their life.
Catch Totels latest work in Ephemeral Landscapes. Totel started crafting collages out of brochures, maps, and other travel ephemera as an alternative way of documenting a trip to China -- you can only look at so many kitschy scrapbooks before you want to shut your eyes with a glue gun, after all.
