Ice Dreams - A Photo Installation - August 2015
Change is natural and, if you look closely, beautiful. Last winter in my backyard I observed the changes in a large sheet of ice on top of my hot tub. I discovered its wonderful ( full of wonder) stages of freezing and melting, during different times of day and conditions.
I played around with different sheets of ice for eight cold months to see what kind of emotions and mind states I could express and create if I placed the ice in front of various objects, man made and Mother Nature made. Wow, I took hundreds of pictures of this new art form.
FOR THE BEST VIDEO EXPERIENCE, CLICK ON THE HD BUTTON ON THE VIMEO BAR AFTER THE VIDEO STARTS.
Then I chose a hundred of my favorite photos, the ones I thought were the most moving and beautiful, and created a this video, then I added music by Paul Winter, who also uses nature to inspire his compositions.
Here is what some people said about the video when they saw it at a juried art show in August.
"It puts me in a dreamy state of mine."
"It relaxes my body."
"It connects me with myself and with nature. "
"I feel more centered after watching the video. "
"I feel like I have some endorphins pumping that are healing me. "
"I use it as a screensaver. And it reminds me to breathe."
Each photo in the video is as nature presented herself….. But she said, “I can change her colors and her size."
