“The video is a short experimentation in which I think aloud my thoughts on a book I read. Using a handheld camera the imagery is of my feet in a stream and my voice and other ambient noises form the sound for this work.
A type of critical reflexive review: an experiment to find my voice, to speak. I give a meditation on a book I have read and the video is a letter to the book’s author. I wonder how we can find the permission to speak, while I kick water and trace patterns with my foot.” – AC
