In Transit offer a collection of daily life passages in ten parts. The visuals draw a wide range of locations. Gathered in cities, nature settings, carnival, various modes of public and private transport, they are sometimes ironically set to the voiceovers. The texts are observations and reactions presented in either a poetic or blunt manner. Amidst this travelogue of the times is a desire to weigh situations and to make decisions based on individual needs and directions in life.

Basic philosophies of life evolve and are defined through common place events. The mind wanders when a person gets up in the morning to go to work. If the work is of a solitary nature, a person has a lot of time to think. If there are co-workers involved, the kinds of conversations that people engage in the workplace, reveal a lot about personal value systems. People who don’t work must find ways to occupy their minds and even in what appears to be bored, mundane activity, philosophies develop. The business of performing everyday chores and errands are also settings for the development of the thought process.
