Kate Hourihan: “With this video project, I am most interested in exploring new ways of conveying an idea or experience as a narrative. In particular, the idea behind the animation comes from ordinary road travel. We spend countless hours driving in cars, passing through the landscape. Some things we pass are still, while others move incongruously to the motion of our cars. For the passenger, the experience of road travel is a very linear process; you pass one house, then after a few telephone poles there is a stop sign, a few telephone poles later there is something new for you to experience.
The video allows the viewer to experience each action as it happens. The drawing allows the viewer to see the entire sequence of events after they happen. The drawing is a roadmap of the animation, illustrating how the animation itself was made. The drawing acts as the landscape through which the camera passed, documenting each event as it unfolded.”
