I saw this project as a personal challenge to create a film with production values that are as comparable as possible to the works of Reggio, even with a limited amount of funding and equipment. The film was shot entirely on a high-definition digital video camera and features music that was recorded and mixed on my home computer, which includes both electronic and acoustically sampled sonic elements.
The presentation seeks to uncover where we find the greatest wealth of beauty in our habitat by observing the way we live and the how we affect the land we inhabit. Through its poetic structure, the viewer is allowed to question both the aesthetics and meaning of our environmental impact and discover where the lines between garbage and grandeur are distorted or ultimately realized.
