Driving Home was made with Nora Ciurysek.  Thank you Nora.

Driving Home is a panoramic 12’ x 7’ video that places the viewer in the passenger seat of a vehicle as it drives home to my farm.  My sister’s intimate monologue, which describes her experience as a young woman farmer in a male-dominated environment, is heard through a speaker situated at the viewer’s shoulder, suggesting a real conversation.

 

The full-length video is one continuous shot.
