Hard to believe our last Project Honeymoon trip is coming up saturday, March 30th!
After you graduate from art school and move on to other professions, how do you keep making art? SAIC graduates Andrea Gonzalez and Sona Hovhannisyan have found a way with Project Honeymoon. Gonzalez and Hovhannisyan travel the 11 lines of the Chicago Metra and, through photographs, found objects, film, and chance experiences, make novel art. DRA had the chance to sit down with the two ladies of Project Honeymoon for an interview. Read the transcript below.
DRA: In your own words, what is Project Honeymoon about?
Andrea Gonzalez: It’s a way to continue making work after graduation. We travel to find content, but not too far because we have jobs. We travel one Metra line per month or so. We started it about one year ago, and we are finishing it now (Metra has 11 lines). We record how long we spend on the train, walking, in cabs. We’ve traveled about 900 miles, 48 hours on trains.

It was great to be back. Thanks for having us #SAICCareers

only 3 trips. hard to believe it’s almost been a year since we started this project.
Something big is cooking!
Food Photography | Project Honeymoon Trip 4: Geneva, IL
Our 3rd Project Honeymoon trip is the North Central Service line to Antioch (we pick these randomly out of a hat) - our destination: Round Lake Beach & to make it even better, it’s Memorial Day Weekend!
hope everyone’s enjoying their long weekend :-)
& we are super excited. As we (Andrea Gonzalez @agonza1925) continue to tackle each trip, there will be more photos of our findings, sneak peaks of the pieces that are in the works, as well as an info graphic/map which continuously shows our progress via numbers and statistics (kind of fascinating to see miles & hours add up so fast)

Email your comments - we’d love to hear them all! and of course please stay tuned for the final unveiling of the work.
Type Food …the type nerd in me couldn’t resist this.
