First Person Traveler / August 2 - 15, 2013
First-person Traveler is a temporal online sequence of digital images inspired by a recent trip through Switzerland, Italy, and France. Traveling by train, my wife and I spent hours looking out the window as the terrain changed from city to city and region to region. These patterned images are constructed from individually scanned oil paint marks that are copied, scaled, arranged, and colored, referencing my sketches, notes, and photographs from the journey. Each day, the image can be clicked ahead to a new one, following our meandering exploration from the farms near Zurich to the gardens of Versailles.
