Inspired by looking out the window of a moving train, this project is an ode to the innate cinematic and audiovisual relationship between cinema and the city. By combining the sonic rhythms of an E-mu with the distorted footage of trains, we seek to emphasize the strange and alien forms that lie in the mundanity of train travel. Through the Mart's colossal presence in the city, this work evokes how the trains of Chicago have an equally colossal imprint on its people.
