Trajectory was made on a beach in Santa Barbara, CA. In Part I of the film, Erenberg and artist, Greg Card play catch with the camera, shot at distances from three to twenty feet. Part II begins with Card swinging the camera over his head. A 12' rubber cord was attached to the camera and swung overhead while being shot in semi-slow motion. There are two horizon lines: the ocean/sky and the top of the cliff/sky. The two lines are conflated while the camera turns in space. The manipulation of top-bottom, bottom-top creates a disorientated frame-space.
