I have decided to have everything on the one blog 🙂
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 – passers 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 – connotations of nostalgia and sentimentality. The image is softened, hazy.
