Camp Camo: Tara Lee Guild

‘Tis the season for camping!  While Mr. F and I are currently tent campers, we have a soft spot for Airstreams.  We aren’t the only ones, though, these aluminum beauties have fans all over the world.  Vancouver artist Taralee Guild captures the way their reflective surfaces camouflage and distort their surroundings.

Mr. F and I are definitely low-impact campers– we try not to disturb our surroundings much when we camp.  That kind of philosophy may seem to be at odds with these kinds of campers, yet the Airstreams mirror-like surface make them seem almost holographic, taking in and then reflecting back their surroundings.  They blend in, yet are still set apart.

To see more of Tara Lee Guild‘s work, please visit her website.  We’re heading out to do some of our own sleeping under the stars this weekend.  What kind of camper are you?  Tent or trailer?  RV or cabin?
