Empty the Pond to Get the Fish
1986, 07:40 minutes, B&W
A meditation in B&W Super 8 film of a fish pond at UBC in Vancouver in 1986. Grainy black and white film used. The grain of the film... like water rushing over it. Like a poem / haiku. Stream of consciousness... flow with the camera. The fleeting moment. A meditation on time and space. The sense of the ordinary as remarkable... accidental possibilities. The slowness of the Zen gardens found in Vancouver. Hand-held camera / drawing with the camera.
