We received this very cool image in a Happy New Year email from teacher and filmmaker extraordinaire, Leighton Pierce. A New Year’s greeting titled “Trippy New Year.” If you are unaware of Leighton, please check the link below to acquaint yourself with, who in my opinion, is one of the greatest living filmmakers. Plus, Mr. Pierce just sent us the link to two films he just uploaded to Vimeo for our enjoyment! Check them out at the links below.
LINK: “STONE MOSS (v.2)”
“Stone Moss is composed entirely from digital still images and is a segment of a much larger and multifaceted work titled Agency of Time, a 3 tier, long-term project consisting of a symphonic mutli channel video/sound installation, a series of single channel works and a photography book. Stone Moss is the first of the series of single channel works. The content of Stone Moss as well as of the photographs and installation focus on an awareness of perception, point of view, time, desire, and memory to encourage an active yet open emotional engagement with the piece.” – Leighton Pierce
“Sitting is a reflection on the process of representation and also on the relationships between the various players in a situation of representation. The layers of observed and observers constantly shifts. The question of who owns the image is up for grabs. Composed entirely from digital still images.” – Leighton Pierce
