nomaden

Two people, a young woman and a young man, are standing at a highway junction. There is a feeling of unease in the air. Their eyes meet in the growing traffic noise, merging with the perspective of the passing road. The noise penetrates the gray concrete walls, the overgrown traffic islands, the train tracks, trucks and the highway parking lot. Time passes slowly amidst the constant stream of traffic, the differently colored parked trucks and a disused highway ramp. “Nomads” takes the static perspective of a fragmentary place in the transit area. Here, frozen interpersonal dynamics meet massive and heavy forms of urban architecture. Emotional worlds run parallel to the perspectives and alignments of the concrete formations of the highway.
