Can a video camera can capture the aura of a space that has experienced trauma? I made a list of places I knew about where accidents had happened and we filmed them. But my camera did not “capture” anything. It could be due to the limitations of physics, but the canal remained a canal, the house, a house. Maybe the aura we sought doesn’t exist. Maybe you can see better than us.
