Artist Statement:


    Filmed in the Florida Keys, the Chihuahuan Desert and the German Green Belt, e-scape v explores the presence of technology in open spaces, revealing with a sense of magical realism the ways in which electronic equipment, infrastructure and refuse can alter our perceptions of the outdoors. In this series of abstract narratives, nature revives a discarded TV, then consumes it; a window on a train both divides and duplicates our view of a mountain landscape; an electric fence supplies power to electric sheep; kabuki beacons stream festive data into an otherwise stagnant swamp; and a Trojan virus, physically manifested to resemble its namesake horse, escapes into the wild. e-scape v was created with the support of Arrow Electronics and scored by the Kevin Costner Suicide Pact.
