Trans- was created specifically for a public art film and video installation at the Denver International Airport. Based on the idea of D.I.A. as a gateway to other places, the film is an experimental exploration of a journey "elsewhere." The film uses a palate of visual textures to depict the atmospheres encountered within foreign and familiar environments. As a subjective documentary and memory piece, Trans- not only depicts the associative progression from one image or place to another, but also illustrates a spectrum of emotional and psychic effects experienced while traveling at home and abroad.
Trans- was created from over 3 hours of original Super 8mm footage filmed between 2001 and 2003 in the U.S., Europe and Canada. This film was funded by a grant from the Mayor's Office of Art, Culture and Film in Denver, Colorado. Trans- currently appears as part of a public art film and video installation in the upper mezzanine on Concourse A at the Denver International Airport.
