Clean Rooms, Low Rates By Brendan Barry

‘Clean Rooms, Low Rates’ is a collaborative, cross-genre exploration of the American motel by Brendan Barry. Standing at the intersection of economics, aesthetics, poetry, 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 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.
