2000, 2001

I have a Logitech QuickCam 3000 that I purchased during freshman year on a whim. It's been through sleet and snow, but still works like when I first got the thing. I periodically let it run hooked up to my laptop, which I carried in my backpack. I let it take a frame every 10 or 15 seconds, and compile them into one large movie. This would allow me to take about an hour of footage, but be able to watch it in about 10 minutes. Almost like time travel. It's essentially time-lapse, but moving around. Iit's disorientating at first.

Fall, 2000. I was part of the first group of students that ever lived in DeNeve plaza, the brand new dorm complex at UCLA. However nice it was, it was the furthest from the dining halls. I set out to illustrate just how far of a walk it was. A Quickcam3000, if you aren't familiar with it, looks like a little ball with a green light. Sort of like a little alien head. It doesn't look much like a camera. It's slightly voyeuristic, if you want to get down to the brass tacks.

Part 1. Winter break, 2000. Shot at the Dunne residence. Gives you sort of an insight as to what goes on in my house on a regular day-to-day basis.

Part 2. I have a long driveway, we live on top of a large hill in the middle of a small town in Northern California. The citizens in the back of the truck are my brother and his friend, in the red shirt.
