Round Trip is an uninterrupted traveling shot taken from the window of a "Shinkansen" train on a round-trip between Tokyo and Kyoto. Images of the city's unending sprawl coalesce and overlap on screen mirroring the erratic and chaotic growth of the world's great metropolises. Whether in Tokyo, Mexico, Los Angeles or elsewhere, rampant urban expansion has devoured vast tracks of countryside and replaced nature with an artificial environment.
