ebb & flow
Digital video footage of light reflecting off of water in nature is combined to create living, moving stained glass windows.
Video footage of light reflecting off of water at six important sites in the Pacific Northwest combine to create a moving stained-glass window.
The footage used for this composition was collected at Neah Bay, 8mile Creek (North Cascades), Edmonds Bay, Puget Sound, Grand Coulee, Irrigation Canals (Yakima County), Hanford Reach (Columbia River near Tri-Cities), and Lake Crescent.
This is a short clip from Andy Behrle's ebb & flow digital video project for 4Culture's e4c display in Seattle, Washington. Four video clips combine to create a new media stained glass window. The footage used was captured in Seattle (of Puget Sound) and outside of Yakima, Washington (of irrigation canals).
Multiple video files capturing the textures and colors or water in nature at various locations throughout Washington are layered to become a single composition. As in nature, these microcosms combine to create a beautifully interdependent system.
Without the ocean, there is no rain. Without rain, there are no streams. Without streams, there are no rivers. Without rivers, there would be no lakes and inland rain water could not return to the ocean.
This project was created for 4Culture in Seattle, Washington.
