I went out to Beijing back in January of 2020, to shoot a video project. The schedule was pretty tight, and the traffic in Beijing is so hectic that we ended up spending most of the trip in the car getting from one location to the next. I always shoot from the car, i like that sense of motion, especially when i'm traveling, i feel like it really helps convey that sense of of a fleeting experience. That transience. I like that you only catch little flashes or glimpses of whats going - its quick, little things pop for a moment before they’ve moved away behind you. I'd finished up a body of work a few months earlier - Boys Grown Tall, which was all shot on the I5 freeway in California - the work centered around the semi truck, and i was thinking a lot about kind of a counter weight to that imagery. I think a lot about this phrase “Industry in motion” and what that could mean… The way that idea manifests itself most plainly in the US is through the Semi Truck… the semi truck is industry in motion. In Beijing one of the things i noticed the most was the Moped / scooter prevalence. I loved that it felt so counter to the kind of Grandiose muscle of the Semi Truck. With the delivery scooters, or just transportation scooters - I was thinking a lot about a different kind of industry in motion, and how that was manifesting itself most obviously in Beijing… The obviousness of them is what was so attractive and interesting, the same way the Sami-Truck is in the US. Finding something special in the mundane - it makes life more beautiful, more exciting, more imaginative… You can start to connect un-connected dots - life’s composition on your own terms. I love that. So often what makes art work special is not the final piece, but the process. The final piece can almost be thought of as a receipt of the process, ensouled with outlook & experiences of it’s creator. August 2020, Julian Klincewicz.
