The following short film was commissioned in 2017 for the Joshua Treenial in Joshua Tree, California. The prompt was to create a response to the desert that would be projected onto one of the mountain-sides using a powerful projector.

The piece was created using a custom-developed iOS camera that allowed me to manipulate my view through touch. There is no post production. All manipulation was done in the moment, through filters written by the artist and while filming in Joshua Tree.

The music is Aria from composer Paul Lansky's cantata Threads. It is performed by So Percussion. It is used here with the permission of the composer and performers. The album is available here.
