I am curious about sub-cultures that are transient, whether by choice or displacement. Their architectures disregard the tenets of traditional building and describe short-lived moments of recreation, fantasy, or dire necessity. Camps, for example, often use tents, which can be dismantled as needed and erected again, as well as mobile homes that easily connect and disconnect to infrastructures. Here Today suggests the unique and complex nature of the mobile lifestyle that has been part of circus tradition since the turn of the 20th century. The turned 'handles' reflect five different audio file sections of Roger Miller's 1964 hit King of the Road.
