Using a small, portable HD video recorder, the artist creates a self portrait that captures his confrontation with foreign people, places and languages. He attempts to relate to these cultures but finds his disconnection only emphasizes the alienation he feels at home. While the vibrant pictures and sounds transport the viewer to other continents, the collage of moving images taken in distinct locations creates an unsettling experience. The video is a portrait of a person who is on an endless journey, constantly moving yet never reaching his destination.
