This Is Blissis a transmedia narrative project investigating the vanishing roadside geography and culture of a rural Idaho town named Bliss. The project is philosophically rooted in a broad consideration of how entrenched mythologies of place and traditional mythologies of happiness collide, and are frequently confounded, in a location that bears a complex narrative of booms and busts and reflects the complicated history of American Idealism and Manifest Destiny.
