Still Photo, Moving Image


video

Still thinking about interdisciplinary work, I recorded the sunset a couple of nights ago in a still picture and then a moving image.

Same evening, same sunset, but the different modes of recording resulted in quite different views. 

The still photo is rich with information, and the visual stillness is easy on the psyche.

The movie with domestic sounds (the "Blue" in question is our dog, and the oddly wise and morally synesthetic comment "don't listen to bad behavior" is addressed to him), is rich in other ways and contains almost more information than my senses can focus on.

Like a problem approached from the vantage point of several disciplines, perhaps. 

In any case, ain't this valley pretty?

In the vein of looking at (or thinking of) things differently, I enjoyed the words "don't listen to bad behavior." I'm not entirely sure why, but it probably has to do with the hypostasization of this concept we call "behavior" as something more tangible. As if one could smell another's personality, and subsequently try to avoid or embrace it.

And the clouds aren't too shabby, either.
