What do you see when you see DAY 16’s “Green” by Movingarden? 

Today’s beautiful short film is an introspective one, inviting you to get dizzy with the trees, and perhaps even dizzier with other aspects of day and night, it’s lights and shadows.

Is it mystical disciplines or contemporary physics that you are drawn to when your eyeballs are given a taste of the experimental, the notional? 

Functioning on its own terms, this piece provides kinesthetic impact, a poetic dreamlike textures and fragments that steer far far away from what is being sold in the big box store aisles. It is indeed a fine emerald treasure, enjoy.

DAY 8 – Fall Ideals: Los Angeles River

Today is a short film by Julianna Parr (me) about water, pumpkins, and one of LA’s secret havens: The Los Angeles River.

What you can see is pumpkins and the LA River. What you can’t see is the perilous task that is pumpkin wrangling IN the LA River.

It’s slippery, even if you have tread-laden shoes. But it’s beautiful, and it’s our river, and it was great fun slogging about, setting up shots with orange orbs in the middle of the day. One woman asked us if we were scared.

I’m not sure what she meant. Did she mean being in the LA water? Did she mean being scared of the urban environment? Was she inherently uneasy at the site of pumpkins not analogous to the surrounding landscape? I assured her that we were not scared. Maybe she meant flash floods? Flash floods are scary, and I made sure to check the forecast for any rain that would be happening up in Valencia or other places that could send a deluge of water our way, but the coast was clear.

It was sunny, breezy, clear and serene at the river. Pigeons were very curious about the project.

Gothtober DAY 11 (book titled “Huckleberry Djinn” gives you an abstract mystery of sorts, with beautiful imagery from MovingGarden! Lush greenery, a very trippy pinecone and some wild surroundings illuminated by the moon will make you ponder:

The Northwest woods, 1875.

Where did the girl come from?

Pine cone, lost doll.

How did the doll get in the water?
