This is a short film about famed artist John Baldessari. It is narrated by Tom Waits. This short film needs no more prompting for you to watch it.
Dunno much about this guy, but I like. Sasaki Mokoto (b. 1971) is a Japanese photographer whose latest work titled “Tokyo Layers” involves shooting the city at night while in motion and using multiple exposures and the results are refreshingly new.
I hope that we get a feel of the fact that we are living in passage of time and also the individual life, city and society are formed by accumulation of time from an unusual viewpoint once again.
This video is made up of the skater’s shadow using an unusual perspective with rather effective results at time. I’m gonna remember that.
The title of this video by Joe Pease comes from this essay – yhoo.it/IBn2mK – which contains paragraphs such as, “It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. However, in order to grow up, children must leave behind this fantasy… no one ever fully grows up. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life.” Of course, it might just be a bunch of shadows. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
