DAY 3 Jason

Some ramblings to go along with the video:
Since we seem to have technology on the brain
Oh far too much
I felt compelled to go from there
But spent so many hours in failure
It just didn’t look right…
Besides, oh technology…
What difference is any of it making?
For every step better
Another step worse
So many screens
Rotting my spirit
Mind full of fog
Heart tired
Neck shooting sharp pains
Too many hours sitting on a bad chair sewing masks
Going to have to get a new chair – but where?
And of course then there is
The stress
I could settle for less
All this terror in the world
So many hateful people spreading their hate in a chaotic time.

Only one things seems right to do
When the hands can’t seem to move in rhythm towards anything productive
To make a work of art that I am happy with…
So I turn to Nature for inspiration
And just tune in
Enjoy
It is Spring afterall
And the flowers are bursting
Be at peace
When bathing in a bloom

  • Of course I recognize I am making the art with technology…
  • Sigh, you just can’t win!

So, I will give in for now…and see where this leads us…

DAY 4 – BIBI

In response to your writing, I did a little montage with old paintings and sound effects.

DAY 5 – JASON

In response to your fascinating montage and your words “I wonder what’s going to happen” I thought about a textual video artpiece…
I have decided to explore and document various environments surrounding a nearby stretch of land near the railroad tracks that is not officially a park, but the neighborhood uses it as such particularly more than ever during the home stay period. It was in the background of the first video and is quite a magical place I believe to introduce more of and use. This is just a bit beyond the “park” down the tracks near a major street and mall in background (I may replace the footage with some wideangle version…but for now, this…)
