'zero to sixty', a five channel video installation for (5) - 60' plasma screens, commissioned by the Greater Louisville International Airport in 2007, addresses how we perceive and experience the landscape of a place through different media of travel like the medium of the automobile or the airplane. The first video is a 42 minute recording of the rural Kentucky landscape from an automobile (my 1999 blackberry Saturn 4-door sedan). This 42 minute video was digitally altered to appear to speed up from 60 miles per hour to 500 miles per hour, the speed of the airplane over the five plasma screens across from the moving sidewalks of the airport so that the last video is only 5 minutes long. This is the last video in the series of 5, of what the Kentucky landscape would look like at the speed of 500 mph. (This piece was relocated from the moving sidewalks and is now across from the airport bar...)
