You Are Here is a two-channel video installation composed of a video projection and an LCD screen. The projection shows Death Valley's "Racetrack" lake bed with its mysterious moving rocks and their carved trails. The video was created by mounting a camera on a radio-controlled tank. The image's perspective is of an average boulder on the playa. The LCD screen is positioned on a stand in front of the projection and displays 5 animated text tableaux in a loop. The text appears letter-by-letter as if typed on a computer keyboard. The SynneScript™ font is copyright of the artists and was specially designed for the piece.
