Skyline Walking 29 April 2021
Skyline Walking is a recent project initiated by Alisa Oleva. As an open call for participants, Alisa asked for short videos of around one minute duration, recording a walk that features a scene looking directly upwards towards the sky, with buildings silhouetted against the night sky. On Thursday 29th April 2021, I chose a location in Ho Chi Minh City that had conveniently spaced buildings with a noticeable architectural feature in the facade...and the rest I left to serendipity. During the minute's filming I walked around 30-40 feet, avoiding cars and other pedestrians, orienting the camera as I walked, trying to use the nearby architecture to recreate the sense of 'being there'.
