I made this video for art in the open in August 2012. It was one of 3 video projections in the piece that was projected outside on 3 screens along a tree lined path in Victoria Park. While making the video, I was thinking about how the park is used and found that a lot of people exercise on its boardwalk and through the trails in the forest. I love to run in the park, so I decided to try to incorporate ideas of abstract things that we run away from and that we run towards as well as the physical aspects of movement. The 2 smaller screens were projections of 1. the point of view of the ground from a run that I did around Victoria Park with the camera attached to my waist pointing down at the ground and 2. another run that I ran in the park with the camera attached to my waist, but slanted slightly upwards so that viewers could occasionally see reference points from the park and recognize where the video was taking place. The video that I'm submitting to vimeo was projected on the largest screen and is an exploration of the mental & physical ways that we run.
