Hear My Train 'A Comin' (2007)

3 min 29 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"Hear My Train A' Comin' is a video that investigates both hope and blind faith. From my experiences in NYC to New Zealand, exploring ongoing themes. In the end a crowd explores an abandoned railroad tunnel in New Zealand. The overexposed exterior appears bathed in a white light reminiscent of Hollywood and tabloid tales of near death experiences and alien encounters. (Such genres generally express both apprehension and optimism)".
