"Pedestrian " is a work for the Web which evokes the resonance
of urban space through the experience of walking, and in an encounter with
ordinary objects. A meditation on perception and place, "Pedestrian"
explores the capacity of ordinary objects to trigger altered states of memory
and reverie. A series of loosely connected episodes examine particular intersections
of place, time and substance and employs the mundane to> reveal the magical.
This piece explores architecture as metaphor, and uses the context of
public space as a vehicle for the exploring private mythology. A walk through
the City becomes the trigger for a meditation on space, time and human interaction,
and the dynamics of urban space and street life seen through chance encounters
with evocative objects. The narrative of "Pedestrian" includes
"The Reverie of Space" and "The Reverie of Objects".
Each region provides a distinct visual and textual experience through the
interplay of text, sound, and moving images. The narratives of "Reverie
of Space" explore the social dynamics of eye contact, examine words
as the visual background of urban culture, and celebrates the magic of artificial
light. "Reverie of Objects" explores commodities and consumption,
and the potential transformation of humble or debased objects through reverie.
