Just exploring and continuing to return to some places that I felt some kind of attraction to is something that I have realized is part of my process. If I look at my many years doing this, either by photography or now sound, the bulk of my observation seems to happen within a 5 km range of where I live.
Part of it is probably that this is the only way we can access minutia with unyoking of attentiveness. How we can see the big in the small.
The root cellars (potato barns in New Brunswick) here are quite spectacular, I have seen several on Newfoundland and a few there. But I have not seen very many that make quite as bold a statement in their landscape as these.
Didn’t post last night, needed to rest a bit and watched the last episode of “American Gods”. There are aspects of it that I really engaged with.
Between that, and now I have obviously worked on my sound files, collected more video footage and would like to offer another instalment of “work in progress”. Mind you, for me, work is always in progress since it never ceases to evolve.
Close enough to Twillingate to be part of Twillingate, but it is it’s own place. Like most other places agglomerated to form larger entities to support services to the population, they maintain a sense of pride in their own community as its own entity.
I had an illuminating experience at the Durrell museum learning of the Arm Lads Brigade, my upbringing in New Brunswick did not expose me to these stories and I find them to be completely engaging. The idea of creating cultures of discipline and service have always been fascinating because of the way they articulate the social contract. I speak neither for or against, it is simply an observation.
