My approach to video is to record the magic of movement already present in the world. The camera is still, allowing the viewer to experience the movement from a place of stillness. This allows the mind to relax into a spacious state. It was challenging to keep the camera still in a moving canoe, so I was grateful for the expert paddling by my husband, Guy Marsden.
This video was a collaboration with composer/percussionist Brian deAngelo from Buffalo, NY. Brian had seen several of my earlier videos and felt I was a kindred spirit. As a fellow outdoor enthusiast he had composed his work, "Loon", inspired by evenings spent fishing on the lakes of the Adirondacks . My video was created in one long take without even hearing his work. We were both thrilled that the shifts in water movement echo the varying rhythms of his composition so beautifully. Enjoy!
