Abstract

This film is intended to document and share the daily, mundane, tasks that become repetitive. And how the landscape that we have sculpted plays an intricate role in how we go about doing these tasks. I chose to document my daily commute to school, and the journey that emerges from this daily task. The starting point is a road near my house, the ending point is a classroom. Unknowingly this film also features the dependence of the automobile, as many people rely on the mechanics to get them from point A to point B. The film also can show how the automobile has shaped the landscape for its own benefit by using roads and bridges. The mundane daily tasks that we do, become part of the landscape even when we are unaware of our part in it.
