trip - 63 mins., single-channel digital video (2008)

trip is a 63-minute road trip around the world compiled from YouTube clips of travel shots photographed from inside vehicles, seen and heard through the eyes and ears of missionaries, soldiers, truckers, migrants, locals, tourists, and others documenting their journeys.

trip is a travelogue across a discontinuous geography connected by the continuous presence of a road and a moving landscape, seen through a window, an experience that mirrors jumping from hyperlink to hyperlink on the Web. Traversing 70 countries and 20 languages, trip reflects the continuous and relentless global flow of images, people, culture, data, and goods around the world, occasionally stalled by natural disasters or by war, but ultimately without end.
