Perception of landscape is affected by how we move through it. With an increase of speed, we lose the ability to see clearly; our movement makes the landscape seem less defined.
As humans have come to rely on machines to accelerate movement, we in turn depend on technology to capture and reproduce the momentary experience. Our recall is supplemented and often dominated by the photographic record.
The images in this body of work are taken directly from digital video, recorded while driving through New Mexico. But the world captured by the camera appears vastly different from the one experienced and remembered.
