Abstract:

"The O-MI Motel is a one-star motor court that, at the time of this publication, was still standing on North Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, IL. The images in this publication were gathered from the participants who ventured to room #7 at the motel. The text pieces were generated by the writers and artists who were inspired by this particular space"--Colophon.

"The concept is that a viewer/reader will have a visceral understanding of the ROOM, as well as that eerie realization of motel-visits; that many lives have passed through that same space. This is achieved cumulatively in a multi-faceted, cubist kind of way all while existing in that space I enjoy so much: the intersection of Artist Book and Fiction"--Editor's statement at the Vamp & Tramp Booksellers' website, viewed on March 20, 2015.
