Travel(ing), 2005

Video DVCam PAL – 16mm film – color – 3min loop

Video-performance for a truck, generator and 16mm projector, Travel(ing) confronts the reality of an experience with its cinematographic representation. At night, on the back of a moving truck, a 16mm film showing a daytime view of the same road the truck drives along is projected. The fragile and wavering film image draws the ­viewer’s eye like a moth to light, and uses mise en abyme to depict the hypnotic power of moving images.
