“The Knowledge of London” is the in-depth study of over 300 London street routes and thousands of places of interest. These must be completely memorized by any aspiring driver who wants a license to operate in London’s black taxi cab profession.
This short film features two interviews with London taxi drivers who recount their experience of “doing The Knowledge”. Accompanying these interviews are animated Lidar scans of London. Lidar is a laser-based 3D mapping technology used by self-driving cars to see and navigate. The film journeys through the minds of taxicab drivers, through 3D scans of London streets, and through what might be lost when a centuries-old profession adapts to the prospect of automation.

Bill Clinton’s strange legacy as President of the United States and ringmaster of the 1990s is a mess of public amnesia, nostalgia, and scorn. William Jefferson Wilderness is a personal exploration of that legacy, and of the tangled process of consigning a former political hero to history.
