Parallel is part of a continued exploration into the cinematic landscape.  When our vision intersects with a seemingly hermetic story the potential for us to find ourselves; the ability to map our experiences through the landscapes becomes apparent.  Our lives emerge from the screen, entangled within a vast archive of cinema and when memory and cinematic landscapes blur together an interstice is created where a sense of place and the memory of light burns brightly.
