Abstract
Similarly to a portion of “E1 A&W F Print,” “El” focuses on the Chicagoan locomotion via CTA trains. A static camera idly sits passenger, recording the swiping cityscape. Scampering atop rooftops, visual markers identify (for at least a portion of the footage), in particular, the Blue Line’s peripherals. A short portion of footage depicts the train diving below ground distinguishable through lights whizzing by with science fiction-like effect.
