HD video, TRT 7:25 min
Twentynine Palms, California
in collaboration with Lisa Truttmann

Tabula Rasa is an exploration of space both on and off the screen. As a rhythmic composition of silent white surfaces, mumbling pine trees, humming motors, babbling crows and unsettled rain in the desert, it questions the current state of its own media, but at the same time portrays a location: Smith’s Ranch Drive-in Theater, Twentynine Palms, California.
