ART 3750, Video Art 2

This project was inspired by ambient piece the Disintegration Loops by William Bazinski. As culture transitions into this new digital age, we are losing our touch with the natural world. In this video I was trying to depict both the new found beauty of digitization, and the sorrow of what we are poised to lose.

ART 3750: Video Art 2

This video was created for Western Michigan University Video Art 2 course. This assignment was to be experimental, and I made it experimental in nature. Archival footage of wind blowing through trees was collected and is accompanied by their sound. With the video I speed up imagery, overlay it, and have quick cuts for the viewer to always be grasping for nature’s fleeting. I titled my video “Pause” for the viewer’s need for something to remain consistent in my piece. Although it is unlikely to pause nature I make it possible through its immortalization in media.
