The story follows the classic narrative of a road trip and aesthetically celebrates the Australian landscape, however reaches beyond the narrative to explore tensions of time, space and the sexual tension between two female hitchhikers.
ʻExitʼ consists of three interweaving cyclical stories that were shot as a series of stills and HD video. The imagery is exhibited as continuous looping projections, supplemented by looped motion video footage of various highway landscapes and an intimate underwater scene.
Following are a selection of stills I shot for the installation. I also composed and performed the music for the installation. It premiered at the Berlin Institute for Cultural Inquiry in September, 2010. You can view the completed piece online here.
