I've also started playing a little bit with some of the video I've taken.
I'm fascinated by movement. The kinds of movement that people overlook because it seems mundane. To me though, it's like the incessant ticking of a clock. It's the things that happen regardless of whether or not a human is there to make them - or sometimes in spite of it. It's way the eye can capture speed but completely un-focus from it. The way the mind detaches.
The first video (the water in the window) was taken my my trusty old Canon sureshot digicam (10megapixel work horse it is!) and the other two were actually taken with my camera phone. I find the ease (and pocket size) of my phone to be just the thing for these little quick bits. They seem to pic up the ambient sound a little clearer, though with the music added it doesn't really matter.
I'm not sure if they are more or less impactful with music... The jury is out.
It was a long time ago that my charcoals knew that sight.
Floating orbs make a Calder become a Kandinsky. And now there is the beginning of an idea...
Decidedly too dark. And so I abandoned the charcoal for the lighter touch of the pencil...
And the idea slowly begins to take shape.
