For many years, I have been documenting my experiences in themed and immersive spaces. This page presents a sampling of some of the many videos that I have created.
On this page you will discover Lectures (traditional academic talks), as well as numerous feature videos that connect to the many themed and immersive spaces that I have visited over the years.
Check out the many other videos on my YouTube page. I will be adding new videos to this page as I create them.
If you are curious about my field videos (there are over 800 and counting), have a look at my YouTube channel. You should also subscribe if you get the chance.
On the occasion of our return to the airport, there was a woman on the shared ride van who said, rather glibly, “I never heard of the gum wall. That’s something for tourists, not for locals.” She was, it appears, unaware of the traditions of cave art, and also unwilling to accept the value of pilgrimage, however misdirected it may seem. She also lost sight of mana, and its appearances in places and through things we may have relinquished to the scrap heap of our existence. A social media review of the gum wall once said, “the only thing here is gum and people taking pictures of it,” and these words remind us of what is present—and absent—at the Gum Wall in Seattle, Washington. Here is an impression of this site. Inspirations from Walter Ruttman, Dziga Vertov, Chris Marker, and Godfrey Reggio. Recorded on a Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera, without tripod and with notable errors in exposure and focus, thus leading to new experimental possibilities. The sound is intended to evoke the soundscapes of the Buchla.
