Transects is a video projection with accompanying quadraphonic surround sound. Recorded on Rabbit Island the video features navigation through the dense, forested interior of the island. Movement through the landscape is presented by walking across the varied terrain, and shifting the focus between the immediate and the distant from a fixed vantage point. This is punctuated by an occasional static shot of the island environment.
Working on the island I often cut through the interior to reach the lee side shoreline, attempting to walk as straight a line as possible. The video highlights the impossibility of that desire and how one must navigate the environment presented.
