built environment refers to the ever changing urban landscapes that provide settings for human activity, ranging from comprehensive public superstructures to personal and intimate places and spaces.
By situating all manner of kinetic and gestural material within an evolving, at times densely populated environment, I hoped to create an audiovisual work that harnesses some of the energy and vitality of various built environments in which we live.
At times I sought to build interrupted, or episodic trajectories that felt almost incomplete, in an attempt to convey a feeling of that which is unfinished, as with the flux of our many built environments.
