How to Get There

This series of videos documents the routine (and not-so-routine) travels of my daily life. A collection of footage from moving trains, cars, bicycles, and airplanes, How To Get There highlights my never-ending movements and the constantly changing landscape that passes by on my journeys from one place to another. The videos are short vignettes that serve as visual instruction manuals for those journeys and feature specific trips I’ve taken over the past years.

In making these videos I’m interested in revealing something about our collective need to constantly be on the move. How To Get There is based on an appreciation of the vast and complex transportation network that is so ingrained into modern American life, connecting each individual and the places they inhabit into a larger whole. These short videos manifest examples of the everyday triumph of getting where you need to go.
