San Joaquin

2020-2021,  8 min, video, color

With aerial and surface footage, the film probes the San Joaquin Valley in California, the single largest alteration of the land surface attributed to humankind. Surveillance, technology, visuality, and land use are reflexively explored in this hyper real landscape.
