An array of video cameras continuously examine a series of crafted landscapes in exacting detail and relay the footage, projected in real-time, to a large-scale screen. The work runs live using three revolving tabletop carousels holding sculptural props, collaged forms and architectural motifs to generate perpetual and endlessly variable cinematic and phycological landscapes.
