This film is the result of a collaboration between myself and a stream in Woodstock, NY at the Byrdcliffe Artists Residency. Using an exacto knife, I scratched a line into black film leader and left it in a stream for a week. The dirt, rocks, and water in the stream created the flecks of white that you see, and the soundtrack.
