Tales of a Flaneur (2001)

In shuffling through my digital archives, I happened upon this video I made with a friend in 2001. In the untitled piece, I glumly wander through a post-911 Hoboken to the tune of Sting’s rendition of Angel Eyes. It’s both the culmination of many years of making similar videos as a teenager (me wandering through empty landscapes in search of a pretty girl or mourning something that’s been lost) and the start of my professional flâneurism.
