Road Map 2004
Road Map explores themes first identified in A Question of Distance: the intricate relationship between visual representations of landscape and the imaginative act of listening/witnessing. These concerns are explored through the format of a ‘road movie' in which we listen to a narrated encounter between an Israeli soldier and an arrested Palestinian subject, accompanied by video projection of landscape seen through the windscreen of a moving car. As the narrative unfolds, the visual landscape which is intermittently obscured by rain and windscreen wipers, becomes more vague and unidentifiable as the car leaves the road and finally arrives at a dead end.
The structure of the narrative suggests that the moment of ‘impasse' in communication/representation could be the signal for the necessity for a new kind of beginning, implicitly arguing that there is a possibility of social change through a shift in personal experience.
