AROUND A BEND
2013, 17.5 x 6", Archival Inkjet prints
“The car is an aural space, a glassed-in entertainment pod with a hypnotic, constantly changing visual panorama projected onto the windshield. This is why we like to listen to music in cars–the changing linearity of the passing landscape mirrors the temporal transformations of the music. The driver is mesmerized by the ever-expanding vanishing point. Auto-TV will continue to be a marginal component of automobile entertainment systems, whereas car stereos and cellular telephones will ultimately be ubiquitous.”

Consisting of over a hundred photographs taken at multiple street corners in Halifax, this series lightheartedly investigates what drivers look like as they are concentrating on making a left turn, as they drive themselves (and sometimes others) around the bend.
