Abstract
Elam’s “El Shots,” sharing footage and theme with Elam’s “El,” sketches travel in Chicago. From people scurrying across intersections, to cars blurring down pavement, to watching buildings whizz by from an El-situated vantage (seemingly the Blue Line), Elam outlines how people orient the city as well as juxtaposes said locomotion with meandering individuals, e.g. children playing.
