Moscow Has Nice Weather (2020)
3D Animation, 4K Dual-Channel Video Installation with 2.1 Sound, Poetry
Moscow Has Nice Weather comprises phone footage of in-flight screens, poems about the uncertainty of intercontinental traveling, and 3D rendered images. The repetitive audio-visuality of its animation suspends viewers in contemplation and emphasizes the process of travel as an essential spatio-temporal experience of becoming. Several lines of poetry manifest the unknown future’s mixture of anxiety and freedom: “I wish I could drive across the Pacific Ocean / Do your best to enjoy the journey / To the abyss of unknown.” The work is displayed as a dual-channel video installation. Two LCD screens are installed on metal floor stands, which resembles the look of the information kiosk in airports.
