“These images of RVs lodged deeply in night jungles suggest a humanity isolated from a dark, unpredictable nature. The powerful sense of displacement and alienation from the natural world conveys a relationship with nature in which something has gone very wrong. The occupants of these glowing ‘life support pods’ are hermetically sealed off from the natural world looming darkly just beyond. (…) The RVs are the night song of a dark American dream, lovely and glowing, yet somehow toxic and chilling.” *

“The series is overtly theatrical, with the foliage surrounding the RV’s resembling scenery props, and they are intended to look staged, almost dreamlike, concocted exercises in artifice. In that sense they share the current wave of interest in the theatrical and artificial, but in fact they are not.” *
