Monday Video: FireKites “Autumn Story”

Thanks to a link from my friends at Common Craft comes this creative, beautiful and haunting musical video, Firekites – AUTUMN STORY – chalk animation from Lucinda Schreiber.

There are so many things that this video evoked for me. The traces of chalk brought to mind the traces that communities leave behind them and reification. It reminded me of conversations about digital identity – both its permenance and empheral nature. And of course, about the power of images. WOW!

P.S. Congrats to Lee and Sachi at Commoncraft for their story in Seattle Magazine.

  1. Neat – thanks for pointing this out!

    Oddly enough I’m much better with slate and chalk rather than white boards and seeing the chalk smudges brings back memories of beautiful equations and thinking.

  2. Steve, I WISH I was good with chalk, but the actual feel/sound of chalk/chalkboard is very difficult for me. I even took me a while to get used to using chalk pastels on paper. The kinesthetic bit really gets to me!

    Have you played with chalk/chalkboard lately?
