THE ROOF RUNNER

 

Carsickness plagued me when I was a child (it still does).  While my siblings were able to read or play video games on long road trips, I always had to look out of the window to keep from being sick.  To fight the boredom I would project myself out of the car and into the landscape as it passed by.  Often, I would imagine myself as a runner, crossing rooftops and hurtling from building to building at high speeds.  In an age when electronic entertainment continues to push opportunities for idle imagination out of our lives, I wanted to recreate this childhood fantasy.
