Don Whitaker’s Totems.
Whitaker describes Totems as “a meditation on an ephemeral water sprite”:
I captured this one at 210 frames per seconds – so it is playing back at 1/7 the normal speed. (Casio EX-FC100)
This is a close shot of a small stream at a spot where the water sort of turns back on itself against a rock. I love all of those fleeting shapes that are constantly created at a spot like that. They are still fleeting even at 210 fps.
Totems is 63 in Whitaker’s BrainBlink series. It’s a great pairing of music and video, and a hypnotic exploration the infinite possibilities contained within even the most minimal material.
