6,414 Miles, 2020


6,414 Miles is a 2-minute looped film of a recent drive across the country to be with a loved one during an impending death. The footage is an amalgamation of six days spent staring mindlessly out of the car window as we raced across the country towards an imminent fate, and back. The foreboding pressure of time was absorbed in aimless thoughts and varied time zones, while space was defined by the varied topographical landscapes. The linear sequence is a manifestation of recollected memories in multi-planar perspectives from both the driver and passenger seat.
