travel [2005]



"N'importe où hors du monde" (Anywhere Out of This World) - Charles Baudelaire

...is a wi-fi enabled antique wooden carrying case equipped with a highly sensitive humidity/temperature sensor. This sentient object, embedded with unknown histories, sits omnisciently in a space, registering the slightest variation in ambient weather patterns. The variable climactic conditions which the suitcase registers are controlling the filmic image of a train, seen from the last car, a kind of homage to the early cinematic obsession with trains and mechanized travel. The image stutters to life and continues on it's hermetic voyage, buoyed and bound to a reactive objét which both encourages and thwarts it's aimless trajectory.
