A kaleidoscopic meditation upon the city in motion, Los Angeles Is Endless (Like a Scroll) explores the infinite cities of L.A., from the incidental backdrop city found in music videos, classic skateboarding tapes, and early Hollywood productions to the virtual city of social media and video sharing sites. Between the two, we capture multiple extant cities by passing through at multiple speeds—by car, by bike, on foot. A remixing of the 1951 radio play adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s “The Pedestrian” forms the sonic backbone for our travels.
