Distance Traveled: January 23 – May 5, 2009, 6,800 miles
String and video, 10:34

Distance Traveled is a consideration and constant questioning of what it entails to do what I do as an artist and the processing of that information. To look at this idea, I used a measurement of string to represent distance traveled during a particular time period. At the time I was traveling from home to work, then to class and back home, which was a considerable distance. I measured the string to equal an inch to a mile and recorded the movement of pulling the string through my hands to work through this idea of repetitiveness and to express the sense of distance which took 10 minutes and 34 seconds. To display the work, I played the video on a small monitor and draped the string around it.
