This is an interactive work designed to prompt viewers into seeing their local environment differently. Guided by the concepts of dérive and montage, I created a video, taking the viewer on a somewhat uncanny walk through the city. The visuals and sounds are layered in such a way so as to disorient the viewer somewhat, and to create a cognitive dissonance between what is being viewed and what is being heard. My goal was to shift the viewers state of mind from one of recognition to one of considering.
