Via
Film

Via is the result of a year long investigation into how we connect with the material world through digital images. Consulting with a Remote Sensing Scientist, I studied macro-geographic visual structures and surveyed the earth digitally while collecting thousands of images.  This film features imagery collected through Google Street view from seemingly infinite one point perspective roads from all around the world as well as digitally manipulated satellite photographs found through Google Earth and the United States Geological Survey Database.
