9 is a magic number in the hands of a poet.
And New York looks so desirable! Thank you for your magnificent art.
Snips of quotidian run, condensed + slightly frozen
pouring down gently as snowflakes on a megalopolis street corner
framed, the nine all present:
Caliope in utering steps, Clio recording footage, Erato hiding in a shopping window display, Euterpe spread in the piece, Melpomene hovering here and there, Polymnia and Terpsichore blended in, making Thalia blossom until Urania makes the connection through a slight tourbillon of snow…
what a fine condensed sight (seeing)
I feel deeply invigorated by this piece.
Jesus Christ, the POWER of your cuts. What a soundscape!
I’ve seen a few of these by other people: moments from a day cut together without commentary. But nothing with this ferocity and vitality. I mean, I know I’ve had two pots of coffee this morning, but that was like a cold wet towel on the back of the neck at a Detroit Techno party. Hard pushed to choose a favourite of your films, but this – in its simplicity – could be it.
this was my most common footage for a while and what made me stop making videos for a time. the nyc rush. it started to depress me. but damn you really pushed this one out with vigor. i liked it a lot. especially the last clip :)
loved the balance of rush rush of humans with the snowflakes of nature taking their time at the end.
After watching I just stared at the blackness and listened to the silence. Contemplating what just happened to me. And then I knew. I was just in New York around Christmas 2008 and now I’m home again in Amsterdam september 2009. That’s big.
And you do that to me most of the time.
