Transit

The video “Transit”, which was produced in collaboration with Steen Høyer, is also about travelling. About being on one’s way, in the “gap”, between here and there. Transit means the state of being moved. We are no longer active travellers, but transported, passive, each of us closed around our dream, stationary on the rolling walkways in unending movement from one transit hall to the next, from plane to plane, from one air-conditioned space to another. We are transported indoors, no longer having to move our bodies through the world and its unpredictable weather. Nevertheless we listen to the weather forecasts with undiminished interest; hour by hour we follow the updated reports about what it is like out there.
