Last serious trip on Pipeline. What am I filming? The road. Camera pointed down the road. Regular and HDR video.
Could be used for detecting Blue Morphos, but also sitting with and observing this slice through the forrest.
First thought is just boring. Dead forrest with an occasional jungle truck or Blue Morpho. But there are some decent soft metrics one could probably pull from this. This constant, jungle monitoring camera. Daily weather patterns, wind, leaves falling, sounds, tree movement, general movement along transect, traffic patterns.
Chased butterflies. Figured out how to make Hamatam army-ants retreat.
It was a different day knowing that these probes and pokes would be my last.
Thinking about how tracking shots on a dolly look so beautiful because they are a rigid, grammatical way of representing 3D information. Each tracking shot is the temporal equivalent of a gorgeous data visualization.
Thought up a possible full title for my thesis-
Digital Naturalism: Cybiotic Media and Digital Biocraft for Exploration and Dissemination
