"Abandon" is a symmetrical series that pairs characters with settings in order to relate a type of experience. Sequence is crucial, although the story told is somewhat existential. It doesn't follow a singular narrative, but rather builds in an arc of intensity. There is a lot in the images, but the most important thing is a sense of placement in time and space. There are beautiful young characters rushing into the endless machinery of the ephemeral nightscape. Yes. But there is also a cultivated chronology, which is the source of the abandon--the sense of moving through time and towards infinity. Leitmotifs: clocks, nightscapes, youth, trains and highways.
