INTERRAIL 2015 - NETHERLANDS TO
My intention was to record new work by uniquely showing an artist in their environment, getting close to the subject matter while offering a fresh look at the world. Making derives, from 14 days spent Interrailing across Europe with only a GoPro, iPad and a train pass in my possession. I documented observations and interactions along the way in response to contemporary psychogeography. This work demonstrates a balance between the architectural performance and urban design, executed through a moving image piece. After post-edit production of the video I worked with music composer Luke Thomas to whom I have collaborated with on previous projects and the results for this piece keep evolving, but have a quite repetitive... train-like momentum still.
