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.


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.
