As a child the first thing I encountered that seemed to be magical was the kaleidoscope. For me, it was one of the first marvels of modern technology, thinking back about it.The Kaleidoscope played it's part in my life and I imagine many of us share some similar memories relating to a kaleidoscope at one time or another.
Currently, I have found myself amused when I decided to make a video of the fall foliage including my neighbor Madeline and because I saw a kaleidoscope in a second hand store, I decided to use it's effect here. Working with it was a bit of trail and error, but eventually I found a way to make this coherent and enjoyable.
What is fun is that you can allow yourself to go with the flow and enjoy the regeneration of this organic color and feel it again for the first time through this method. This video walk lasts just under 5 minutes but still has it’s sense of powerful things coupled with tender loving care. Enjoy it and see the marvels of the fall colors through a simple but effective technique that we all can relate to.
