Doing one of my favorite things to do. Driving around downtown Kansas City, Missouri while listening to NPR.
"A Series of Moments" is my philosophy behind this project. It is a performance of events completely driven by mood and circumstance.
In this video, you will see footage taken by hand with a compact camera taking video on a very large memory card. I use the camera to capture items of interest along my drive, usually with a "shoot from the hip" feel. Often times I don't know exactly what has been captured when I shoot, but I know from experience how to shoot things that I'm not looking at. It's like my third eye.
I enjoy shooting architecture, especially architecture that is in progress, because it is a phase of construction that will never be repeated exactly, and the video serves as a historical document of that moment. The Kauffman Center For The Performing Arts is one such featured structure in this video.
I feel a strong sense of history when I shoot video like this, as though I were helping out some future archeologist or historian get a more complete picture of the city in this moment.
