Mountains and Hills
This video was shot in a park in the hills surrounding Salt Lake City. There are hiking and biking trails and lots of people walking their dogs. Because the park offers a pastoral retreat in a city that is increasingly determined by an influx of wealthy tech workers, it's an apt location for a poem that plays with the way digital space overlaps natural space.
