Vimeo weekend project: Looking Closer

Turning the macro lens onto Vimeo itself!

I wanted to try to give back to the community and do a different kind of macro video - one that looks at the concept of seeing itself - and one that reflects on the shared experience of this community.

Our sense of seeing is limited by borders/boundaries, and we sometimes have a choice on where these boundaries end. The macro lens can be a great tool to help us experience this.

This is in essence a tribute to some of the most memorable and emotionally driven videos posted on vimeo that I have come across.

I want to thank all of the amazing people who put together these videos and decided to share them with all of us - adding a little bit more of that magic into our lives, subtle or pronounced, it is very welcomed...
