Chasing Cadillacs

cad11lChasing Cadillacs is a contemporary west coast interpretation of Vito Acconci's "Following Piece" of 1969...

Using the specific Caddy as a following aspect appears as a comment upon the compulsive consumerism in America. This American icon becomes an obsessive pursuit paralleling the behavior of the mainstream American pursuing "the American Dream".

The piece seems to develop further for the artists as they begin to interact with the owners of the vehicles. This is a diversion from the elusive behavior that Vito used for his work, but it allows this project to reveal the nature of the owners of the American icons. Protective, suspicious, but partially cooperative personalities describe the owners, making them caricatures of the American ideal and the contemporary dream.

Vehicles that can be considered http://zvezda.110mb.com>automobiles were demonstrated as early as 1769,
and 1885 marked the introduction of gasoline powered internal combustion
engines. Automotive history is generally divided into a number of eras based on
the major design and technology shifts.

My husband and I want to buy a house. We already have 2 houses, they are both being leased to own and we can prove it. My husband has had the same job for 24 years and has a decent income. We will only be using his credit. We have a trust account with 2 times as much money in it as the amount we want to borrow. We do not want to pay cash, we want to get a loan. The hitch is that we have bad credit at the moment. We just paid off all of our debt, all we have are the 2 houses but over the last 2 years our credit has suffered due to a bad financial situation. Does anyone know if there is any chance of people with our scenario getting a http://blogs.ign.com/d-johnson/2007/09/23/67042/>home equity loans for people with bad credit? Any info will be appreciated!
