After BMC


video

This is a quick edit of my most recent film . It is a piece about the idea of idealism, based on photographs taken at Black Mountain College. The film represents the zen approach to physical activity... Through years of practice, a physical activity becomes effortless both mentally and physically, as if the body executes complex and difficult movements without conscious control from the mind....This is also a response to the teachings of Merce Cunningham and John Cage...There is an 8mm film version of this, that is still being processed. Hopefully it will come in time for the degree show and be able to show the beauty of trial and error in flickering movie motion...
