Uneasy Ride adapts the road movie’s quest of freedom as the symbol of the current human condition. It contemplates the shortcuts used in pursuit of said freedom, and the imminent collision with nature looming ahead, unless change of course is taken. Enacting abstract and ritualistic imagery, with sounds captured on-air, the work focuses on the transient moment of choice at the crossroads, decision pending.
Uneasy Ride sets the initial stage for a series of works dealing with roads, traveling and the human condition.
