I am very interested in the environment and how we as humans can harmoniously live and interact with our environment to most efficiently and self sustainably live. Here are some videos I have created related to this topic.
“Deep Roots II” (25 min or 5 min version) focuses on the use of art on farms to spread the message of the importance of local urban farming and being conscious of how to support your community through collaboration…
“Deep Roots 2 – Days and Nights on the Farm” was premiered at The Bainbridge Club on December 1, 2012. “Deep Roots II – Days and Nights on the Farm” is a documentary about an event that took place on October 6th and 7th. Deep Roots II was a multi-media art installation by Meei Ling in collaboration with Weavers Way’s Mort Brooks Memorial Farm and their Farm Festival and in conjunction with the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST) and lighting designer Jackson Kay.
Here is “Deep Roots II” (the 5 min version).
“Deep Roots” 5:46 minutes
This is video covering the “Deep Roots” art installation by Meei Ling Ng in collaboration with Michaelann Velicky. “Deep Roots” was a part of the Turtle Artisan’s Tour on May 5th and 6th , 2012. Meei Ling Ng is my neighbor and she contacted me to see if I could do a five minute video of this installation and I gladly agreed to do so after learning what it was all about. “Deep Roots” was about using art to share the knowledge of sustainable living and farming in an urban environment. Their mission is perfectly worded: “… to bring awareness to the interconnectedness of all elements in our ecological and social communities.” This idea is parallel to the mission and vision of Ponder Tree, and therefore, covering “Deep Roots” to produce a 5-minute video was my pleasure.
“Brains and Neurons See” 3:01 minutes This is my visual exploration assignment for Film and Media Arts 2. This assignment made us reflect on how we see the world… I chose to do a poetic experimental video on how I believe there is a greater potential that we have as human beings, and a greater potential that our interactions and systemic ways of life can be to live in a more harmonious, efficient, and self sustainable way of life… Written, Narrated, Directed, Edited by Me… Thanks to voluntary actor: Aaron P. Scott. Completed this by March 2012.
