TAPECODE 1026.00

the film is a drawing notebook
a travel journal... I draw with film
my meditation / thoughts on the Zen gardens of Kyoto.
the architecture of film / the drawing of film
grain of the film
flow with the camera... the fleeting moment.

a meditation on time and space
architecture and the Zen gardens
inside / outside gardens and pavilions
metaphor of the body / the gaze
the viewer goes inside the architectural space
and is no longer on the outside looking
at the film projection.
a complete breakdown of inside / outside.

feeling and instinct... emotion
the sense of the ordinary as remarkable
handheld camera / drawing with the camera
making sense of the world around me...
it is that simple.
accidental possibilities
imperfection / incompleteness.
