The Media Test Wall is currently showing Cross Country by Los Angeles-based artist Mike Rogers. Cross Country is a Super-8 film (transferred to DVD) documenting a road trip from the Atlantic Ocean at Coney Island, New York, to the Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica, California. A frame was shot every six seconds so that it appears as if the traveler is speeding at 6,000 mph; paradoxically, despite the high rate of speed on the road, the landscape changes gradually. This film allows viewers to traverse the country in about the time it takes to watch a TV sitcom.
