My first multi channel work for synchronized video streams. The piece starts in Cape Cod and moves gradually across the North American continent, ending at the Pacific Ocean. There is no attempt to cover all this of ground in any compete way - the work is an assembly of the places I traveled to and landscapes I admired during the four-year period in which I collected the material. All the scenes were shot with a single camera, then staggered in editing to create the appearance of a continuous shot. During filming I would pan, pause, and then move again, resulting in a series of staggered movements in which the different screens appear to drift in and out of synchronization. Installed at El Camino Medical Center in Mountain View, California.
These images were created to accompany the music track by Odd Nosdam, with whom I had done a few live shows that year in San Francisco and one a few years earlier at VOLK in Cincinnati. I admire the distorted and gritty feel of the track and developed an image treatment which worked well with that texture.
