“The Stars Are So Big, The Earth Is So Small. Stay As You Are” (79)
My husband and I bought 10 ½ acres of land this past summer and this purchase represented new beginnings, hope, and a different sense of time and space than what you would find in urban surroundings. As of late, I have struggled with the notion of time and space. Recent experiences in my life have forced me to view the land we purchased differently. Time is no longer predictable or stable in my life, it either goes too quickly or too slowly. I tried to capture that by using a video I took over the summer driving through our land by editing it, adjusting the speed, and changing the color composition. The purpose of manipulating the video was to also show that time and space can change something stable such as a piece of land that has remained untouched.
