The footage for "End of Perspective" was filmed by two drones flying above Dutchess County. Exploring the formal possibilities of airborne camera movements and two-channel editing, "End of Perspective" offers a transcendent experience of nature as it is observed by the mechanical Other. The mechanical gaze of the camera is returned onto the machine itself, as the two drones view each other. Meanwhile, the representation of the landscape of the Hudson River Valley, the site that was historically definitive for American romanticism in landscape painting in mid-19th century, is activated by aerial points of view of the drone technology.
