• Running Thoughts

    Running Thoughts is a collection of strangers' internal & external thoughts while riding the CTA trains in Chicago. For 112 days I rode 3 to 4 hrs. weekly on all train lines to engage with commuters. My investigation culminates as an interdisciplinary art project in which commuters answered the question, "Why are you going?". I transformed the material, which included recordings, interviews, conversations & written surveys, into a layered soundscape, motion graphic projection & a handmade book. Running Thoughts offers an insight into the public & private thoughts of Chicago Commuters.
