Badland is a looping 4 channel installation that features rotoscoped footage from the film Badlands by Terrence Malick. The piece aims to dissect the romanticized archetype of the American masculine outlaw, which is personified by the character Kit, who is based on the real life killer Charlie Starkweather.
