Wish You were tHere, 2017

01:00 Excerpt of 10:00 min HD video loop, single channel edit

Wish You Were tHere explores my relationship with the Mono Basin landscape and my romantic desire for escapism from urban life. I use the photographic backdrop and blue screen for its ability to digitally transport subjects to places of their choosing. The virtual becomes stand-in for the romantic and idealized potential of rural life.
