A North American Practice Exported Elsewhere

2013, HD video, 3'00", looped with sound

Contrary to the Japanese custom of driving on the left side of the road, this westerner is unable or unwilling to adapt his habits. He arrogantly adheres to his right-side position as well as some ideal of “cultural exchange.” In the process he manages to coerce the locals he encounters to convert to his “North American” style of driving.
