In 2013, I celebrated Landscape Architecture Month by running a Kickstarter campaign to fund my first feature film – From Sea To Shining Sea – a contemporary portrait of the USA experienced via a cross-county time-lapse video and audio collage. By watching the film, one essentially takes the journey itself, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and gains a greater appreciation for the sheer beauty of the American landscape.
I continue to look for new ways to communicate landscape via video, so I am celebrating World Landscape Architecture Month 2015 with a follow-up Kickstarter project: Hringvigur. This is envisioned as a circumnavigation of Iceland along the country’s Ring Road. If the project is successful, I plan to shoot in August 2015 and complete my second feature film by the end of the year.
