An American Suburb

October 4, 2010


What part does the American suburb occupy in the human psyche? Europe holds the place of film noir, horror and grit, a firm grip on what art likes to believe is reality. This is comparable to the ghetto in America. The North American suburb occupies a fantasy dream like world where people choose to live. Perhaps avoiding the real awake world. Tim Burton investigated this phenomenon in Edward Scissorhand and other work. The nightmare is always on the edge of this dream.
