I drive,
looking at nothing and everything, simultaneously.

Turning the vehicle into a vantage point, I realize that the world is not moving. I am moving in the world. Beverly. Broadway. Melrose. Sunset. The collection of visual snapshots along a typical Los Angeles street instantly transforms.

One of the most common ways of perceiving the urban environment today is through the window of the moving automobile. The fleeting, sweeping glances employed by drivers and passengers turn the built environment into a steady stream of images. The moving city is a constructed space that exists in the subject’s mind as much as it does in material reality.

Nowhere is the moving city more realized than in Los Angeles. Drive-bys. Drive-throughs. Drive-ins. In Los Angeles, driving is more than just a way to get from point A to point B; it’s a way of life.
