Viewing the videos

Experimenting further with the idea of viewing something. I filmed myself watching and Rhea watching the videos. To be present in the video I sat myself and rhea right in-front of them, blocking our own viewing of the video, but adding our presence. We are present while watching the videos, in that moment in that time and I capture this on video. https://vimeo.com/476251193

Filming through the viewfinder of my film camera.  Sticking to one frame, documenting the pond Рpassers by, movement in trees and water.  Documenting the quiet everyday, taking a moment to pause.  Looking through the viewfinder gave the video softness, changed the perspective as the scene was isolated as if it were a photograph Рconnotations of nostalgia and sentimentality. The image is softened, hazy.
