When the economy crashed, American artist Kristen Wilkins decided to fulfil a childhood fantasy. She bought a 1964 vintage aluminum trailer named Alice and hit the open road with her two cats. She travelled more than 24 thousand kilometres over four summers, photographing her journey -- and especially Alice -- along the way. During Wilkins's adventure, Alice became a nostalgic surrogate for the nuclear family of a bygone era. Some of Wilkins's photos are currently on display at Edmonton's Harcourt House Gallery. She spoke with Russell from her home in Indiana.
