Upstream to Downstream (In Our Bloodstreams) 2010
I sometimes came close to getting run over by speeding cars as I ducked into ditches for shots looking from the roadside through to the end of outflow system pipes at waters' edge; these sequences were shot over the past six months in locations as far ranging as CA, AZ, FL, ME, PA, GA in the United States. This digital video is inspired by my continued horror of our damage to the environment - particularly water. People have long considered water so vast and cleansing, that our practices of treating it like our sewer systems (even though it is the basis of life) need to change - I feel bringing an awareness (education) about the situation is a step in the right direction; with activism as a continuation toward sustainability. It's also inspired by my paranoia concerning the chemical 'body burden' we all seem to carry about in 2010 - an accumulation of our own practices.
