Primary Landscape  (2022)

It all began as a game. Looking through the window during this 17,672-mile commute from Philadelphia to New York City, observing the same landscape over, and over again. I started to categorize in my head the colors, the structures, the objects, among other things. This game became a project.

Each week, with my phone I recorded a fraction of the scenes that passed me by from both sides of the train. Then, I watched the videos on my laptop and selected the frames according to the attributes I chose. With these frames, I created a chromatic collage that encapsulates my journey of this transitional experience of place.
