Traveling Show
(Digital print on canvas, 2018)

Once a popular mode of transportation in the U.S, trains have fallen out of favor. They are largely ignored or perhaps deemed a temporary nuisance as we must wait for them to go by before we may continue on in our cars. Yet many have become traveling art exhibitions as train cars are painted, repainted, coupled, shuffled, and recoupled again. These otherwise unremarkable train cars have emerged as a democratized canvas and outdoor exhibition space, traveling nationally and viewed by large audiences.

Traveling Show is a 42 foot long photograph, digitally assembled from hundreds of photographic stills of passing train cars. This impossible view is perhaps close to the image we see in our mind’s eye as we think of passing trains.
