Freedom Highway (part 5) Emmanuel Madan

In September 2002, I went on a road trip through the United States. In ten days I covered 3000 miles, burning tank loads of cheap American gasoline, surveying the mono-form landscape the U.S. interstate system has inscribed onto the American landmass. I sat alone in my car, sharing the road with truck drivers, commuters, vacationers and highway police troopers. Without a particular destination in mind, my goal was to listen to and record programming in the radio format known as talk radio. Thus began the FREEDOM HIGHWAY project, an exploration of mass media and American public discourse in the post-9/11 context.
