A loose trilogy of live-action works made between 2009-2012, exploring different types of 'panoramic vision'... the panorama as an extended form of visuality that imbues the landscape/cityscape with psychic and emotional significance.
Multi-framing, montage, and digitally edited 'infinite tracking shots' collapse the traditional framing of sequential pictorial narrative, creating an entry into a more allegorical space: one of relentless progression, of cinematic myth, of monuments and elegies, of the metaphysical spectacle of the sky, and of special effects-- in a word, of America itself.
