Driving (2006)

Constructing narrative from disparate, yet thematically related elements, the basis of this piece is video footage found through Google Video using "driving" as the search query. I chose results which depicted the road from a first-person perspective. Footage matching this criteria was edited and sequenced to create a narrative spanning various locations around the world, different weather and traffic conditions, highways, country roads and city streets, as well as different times of day. The result is a commentary on the construct and use of space as defined by the path

Constructing narrative from disparate, yet thematically related elements, the basis of this piece is video footage found through Google Video using "driving" as the search query. I chose results which depicted the road from a first-person perspective. Footage matching this criteria was edited and sequenced to create a narrative spanning various locations around the world, different weather and traffic conditions, highways, country roads and city streets, as well as different times of day. The result is a commentary on the construct and use of space as defined by the path--told through the lenses of individual agents, acting independently, yet brought together by means of a single, external objective and curatorial intent.

The final piece was re-uploaded to Google Video.
