this week, dawn and i spoke about many things, including opera, masks, calvin and hobbes, mochi making and living with grandparents. while we offer occasional exchanges through whatsapp, our conversations over zoom are like a re-charge. not only are they an opportunity to connect but they make me delighted to continue getting to know this individual on the other side of the screen.
thus far, we continue to talk about trying new mediums. although we have yet to settle on a concrete theme for our digital dream, we’ve discussed incorporating sound and movement. this video is not part of our production but participating in this project has encouraged me to feel more open about experimenting with expression. in part, it summarizes many things we’ve come across together and the things i’ve thought about over these last two weeks.
in this video, you’ll hear me strumming the 13th fret on the high e string of an electric guitar. it’s from a song i think about sometimes (can you see the pattern with my updates?) layered beneath this track is likely lake ontario lapping onto the shores of prince edward county. i found this recording on my audio recorder and although i can’t trace the date, it would’ve been from last fall.
and finally, the words i emit with a slight electronic undertone (recording issues) are a few words that came up in our conversation on feb. 13.
filmed is the eastbound sky, a journey taken between my first and last conversation with dawn. ☁️✨
