The Original Flight


Above: The first time I filmed the sled in flight and a still shot from the video.

It all started one day while I was looking out back of my studio. I threw a sled across the sight of my camera and in slow motion it was incredibly graceful. It was a thing, and a mood. Afterward I thought a lot about how dreamlike the image was, especially confined to memory, and I started thinking about how this narrative could be extended.
