Direct Route

Direct Route ​observes a blind woman navigating her domestic surroundings, presented alongside landscape images and the retelling of memories prior to losing her vision. Through conversations, and the solving of word puzzles with her daughter, a story emerges about the relationship between memory and the texture of experience.

Shot on location in Oregon including Eugene, North Bend/Coos Bay, and many points between, memory based recollection provided the shot list for Direct Route ​in lieu of the visually motivated process of traditional location scouting. The use of tools for non-­visual navigation serve as counterpoint to the landscapes.
