I am interested in how the design and constructs in our life set the course of our movement, interactions, and realities.
The distance created by the roadway through the city is fertile soil for watching, projecting, and judgment. The on-looker has limited information but has no choice but to finish the narrative with assumptions and information from other points of life.
For The Driving Scale I desired to keep a distance between my subjects, myself, and my camera. The images read as street photography but the moment of the photograph is closer to Google Maps. The rate at which I move through space limits my engagement and enables bias and imagination as the foundation of my relationship with the subjects. The camera is mounted in the back of the car and preset to expose for light, allowing forms to hide ominously in the shadows.
