Gridlock employs the source sound and image of a location to create a layered composition that resonates as both real and imaginary. Screen shots from video were brought into the aural realm and used to synthesize sonic pictures which were then employed as another version of the original captured scene. The city is composed of a multitude of overlapping grid patterns. Everything from buildings, fences, streets, and windows all conform to the grid structure. Gridlock attempts to break down and recombine these frameworks into an alternate urban landscape. One that conjures images of a familiar yet otherworldly place.
