After looking for a rental car to start our project on the road , we overnight decided to buy a classic Volvo car that someone was selling online. Traveling to the German border, to check out the ’96 Volvo 850 sedan at the owner’s property, it was an immediate match.
Soon after the purchase, the car got its own name: ‘Jade’, after the deep, metallic green coating. Jade starts to play a key role in the project. Not only because it is a necessity in the physical sense of travelling; it becomes a vehicle that carries the emotional content we face and share while on the road. A romantic symbol of short term happiness. A fleeting of a moment, of life that goes by.
