waiting for icarus

'waiting for icarus' is a poem by Muriel Ruykeyser, of a girl waiting for a lover who never returns. a long, long time ago, i read this poem at a poetry open mic in chicago and somehow it's been stuck in my head ever since.

the poem is read in this video by Kelly Tsai, a def-poetry-jam poet.

what if a much of a which of a wind

one hour of footage edited down to two minutes at four different speed and direction. the assignment was to make a video that shows different camera perspectives of one scene, not using the traditional definition of "perspective" and "scene". traditionally, this video is one camera perspective of one scene. i chose to manipulate time, a dimension unit in which we all rely on so heavily to perceive the world (in the broadest sense of the word perceive). by manipulating time, perspective changes. if the time is sped up, then you're going to see things sped up.

'what if a much of a which of a wind' is a poem by ee cummings. the music is 'glint' by 'hope in ghosts', remixed by jienan yuan.
