Morgen Christie Depersonalizes the City

From artist Morgen Christie comes an experimental take on the experience of city life. Sightseeing ”explores the cityscape and its inhabitants through a composition of color and sound.” The stylized distortion attempts to represent to the viewer commonly held experiences of the city’s hustle and bustle, but from a distance that makes it impossible to tell what specific city’s being depicted (unless you look at the video’s description, of course). The soundtrack contributes to the atmosphere of distanced familiarity; even though it’s every bit non-conventional as the visuals, the underwater feel implies immersion into the scene.
