In 1972 Narahara drove across the U.S. in a Chevrolet and came up with an extraordinary series of iconic images in the best Narahara tradition. One of the most famous is "Two garbage cans, Indian village - New Mexico" in an Acoma Indian reservation called 'Sky City'. The garbage cans were suspended in order to prevent coyotes from getting to the waste. 'Sky through twin windows, Colorado', is an artificial image with a crucifix and the wing of a bird. Many of the images show reflections or manipulation of perspective to strange effect. In the accompanying essay 'A Sea without Water' Narahara compares this effect to a negative energy holding electrons in a vacuum. Five copies in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
