An unexpected thing occurred during my artist residency at the ISLAND Hill House (and a funny thing on the way to the forum) – I made my first video blog. Artists do it all the time, I watch them all the time, and I carry my little flip video camera every where I go. But I’d never been compelled to use it in that way.
Something about being alone in the woods, something about finding a way to still connect with the world, something about having lots of time to think – and once I got started, I really liked it.
Which is to say I think I may be a budding video blogger. I may also be a budding nudist. Here are the nine video diaries in a row:
- In Michigan
- The Piano Tune
- Naked in the Rain
- Hootenanny for One
- Making Music and Soup
Meanwhile, from the stillness and creative space of the Hill House, I went straight to the busy-ness and constant motion of a tour and in a couple hours from now, I’ll land in the mayhem of OCFF. A quick switch from inward to outward ways of being and I’m looking forward to next week when I can reflect more on my time at the residency.
But for now, business calls. La la la.
