traveling without moving | your world beginning – video art HD

“Traveling Without Moving,” is the bridge between the past and the future i.e. “Your World Disappearing” and “Your World Beginning.” A video self-portrait that is a visual journey of memories, delineated thoughts, dreams and aspirations. There is a slight contradiction at work here. The body is in motion in time, and the mind is still; the painful past and uncertain future struggle against the stillness of being present in this time and space i.e. traveling in the present moment.

    • Hi Gilly. It has been some time. Hope you are fine. Thanks for stopping by. I haven’t posted much these past few months. I hope to get back into the groove. I really don’t have a problem with filming myself at all. It certainly is a learning process. I hope this new series will center around video self-portraits among other things.

    Walter`s blog, Newdigitalscapes, explores space, time, time memories and emotions in beautiful thoughtful complex digital and video art that is full of passion & creativity. This post in particular, very effectively portrays the Implied Space of the passage of time, memory and experience. It is great video art composition
