'These images reflect upon a time when driving across the country was a right of passage into the American frontier. The apparent symbolism of the motel is still strung across the highways and interstates, existing in many ways as an artifact in a roadside attraction. A photograph of a purple coach blending into the texture and design of decades old pink wallpaper expands the idea that Cousineau is navigating in the fashion of a 21st century archeologist – uncovering a beautiful and unique past of a nation that was quick to rise and somewhere along the way left its distinctive reminisce all across the Midwest. Cousineau shows us these artifacts tastefully, without delving into the underbelly of the low-budget motel. He is preserving a part of America’s past – and letting the rest of us who are a little too weary of embarking on a true American road trip a glimpse of what we are missing out on.' - From Antone Dolezal's introduction
