Short description of the work:
“Speed now illuminates reality whereas light once gave objects of the world their shape.”
Paul Virilio, The Administration of Fear, 2012
In Transit is inspired by humanitys ever accelerating lifestyle. Nothing seems to be able to slow us down as our modern socio-economic development rages on like a rouge train. Simultaneously as we watch our life flash before our eyes outside the window, so does the landscape that we are crossing. The journey – which according to sayings is more important than the destination – has shrunken into a blurry composition of colour and movement.
