The Chaøs Chrønicles - Part I

US Cøast to Cøast

About

The Chaøs Chrønicles is an ongoing around the world road trip  / multimedia project that began in january 2011 with ablog


Over 10 years of nomadism and more than 25 visited countries, the idea of the Chaos Chronicles was the logical expansion of my already existing works.


Consisting of essays, interviews, photography & videos,  these chronicles are a series of encounters, philosophical reflection, a vision of the world through counter cultures and artistic avant-gardes which lead to the curating of the Borderline Biennale at the Abode of Chaos during the summer of 2011. They are also the fruit of numerous artistic collaborations such as

"No Body Is Perfect,  "Vampyres- the movie", "Hidden Shadows" (Hors Edition) and "TokyoLoveDoll" (Editions Treville - Pan Exotica).


This new chapter consists of a 7656 km (4800 miles) U.S. coast to coast road trip with my daughter Mayliss who is a photography student. 

The duration of this trip is an estimated 6 weeks and so far the destinations include:


L.A, San Diego, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Roswell, Dallas, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Jackson, Memphis, Montgomery, Nashville, Louisville, Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit, London (Ontario), Toronto, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York.

We already are on the road ! left France to Vegas on september 28, whent through Death Valley, L.A, Palm Springs, San Diego, Tijuana, Tucson....  going north to Grand Canyon at the moment .

 

What are the fund for?

-Gaz/toll for 7600 km (4800 miles) +/- 900$
