  • Cite

Summary
"Connors creates a fantasy vacation in limitless circumstances by constructing a travelogue that moves from New England forests to the bottom of the sea, to outer space and to all corners of the world. The artist uses video effects such as computer-assisted animation, editing processes, and sophisticated matting techniques as metaphors for perceptual experience." -- WGBH press release

Using both miniature sets and still and moving images of various environments, Betsy Connors evokes both real and virtual spaces.

The work was broadcast as a segment of episode 304 (1987), episode 108 (1991), and episode 301 (1993), of "New Television."
