Description
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.
