The artwork concept stems from the early American, 19th century origin of the word, 'cahoots'. More specifically, the pioneering spirit of the earliest explorers making their westward journey across the USA subscribing to the 'Manifest Destiny'; while much of the landscapes they covered would later become the National Parks we know today. We are inspired by their commiment and bravery to explore the unknown together while celebrating and sharing what they uncover along the way.
