Abstract: The video installation Journeys in Travel tells a story of travel and investigates relationships between travelogue, cinematic essay, and digital database narrative. The open source software “PD,” which is mainly used to create live-algorithmic musical improvisation and (interactive) music composition, controls here an infinite audiovisual narrative. It is a temporary, open-ended arrangement, which sets in motion a seemingly endless chain of references to related topics: Being elsewhere in foreign places, tourism, ethnography, globalization, a hyper-connected world, reality and simulation, movement, pace, rhythm and the relationship of film (structure), narrative and travel.
