A meditation on forward movement through landscapes, marrying a short loop of sample guitar tremolo with prolonged visual dissolves.
"Created during Soto’s residency at the de Kooning studio, the film employs Lisa de Kooning’s own 1960s Mustang convertible as a mobile mount for a camera that catalogues the quiet, nighttime streets that surround the de Kooning studio. Accompanied by the melodic, blues-infused drawl of an electric guitar, the visuals transition slowly from shots of treetops passing overhead to lyrical images taken from within the car. A mesmerizing piece, the film pulls the viewer through space and in the direction of the car’s motion in an effect produced by keen frame-rate manipulation."
