IN PASSING - 103 Films of Rhode Island Roadsides
An Interactive Public Artwork for the Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles

In Passing celebrates the unique movements of automobile travel, focusing a lens on Rhode Island’s unique landscapes streaming past the car's side window. Consisting of 103 short films created by artist Erik Carlson while exploring Rhode Island’s over 6,400 miles of public roadways -- both the urban and rural, scenic and everyday, finding the unexpected in rarely-traveled back roads or crowded beach-side routes -- the artwork uses slow motion, repetition and layering to create a dream-like state, re-introducing a forgotten sense of wonder and surprise while simultaneously creating a permanent record of Rhode Island’s diverse landscapes circa 2011.
