Tree Spirit

While out walking one day I saw this face placed into a tree. It made me wonder, who put the face there? Why did they do this? It seems to have a kind of mysterious air about it. But what could it mean?
What do you think?

Tesla Coil

This is a Tesla coil I filmed at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. Invented by Nikola Tesla, it is defined as “a step-up transformer with an air core; used to produce high voltages at high frequencies.” Source: http://wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=tesla%20coil
For a definition of Tesla coils see: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Tesla+coil
And yes, I am aware that the credits run longer than the video!

Six Textures from a Chair

When I first got a cell phone with a video camera, I tried it out. I realized you can observe a lot of different things sitting in one vantage point. I called this video six “textures” while thinking about how texture often refers to how things feel. Yet we cannot feel things in a video. How can we show what things “feel” like? Also, texture can mean other things, artistically, besides how things feel. It can refer to an “identifying quality or character…of a piece of art” (The Free Online Dictionary).
