Blossom Gift/Favor (1993) 16mm, color, 1/2 min

Genre: Experimental

Dedicated to Doug Edwards. All titles dominate linguistically; in that sense, any film would be better left unnamed. This little hand-painted work attempts to BE a visual "flowering," and as it is (as Film is) a continuity art, it would seek some visual corollary of the whole growth process (root, stem, leaves, blue sky and the bloody-gold growth of the meat/mind electricity of the filmmaker) -- but without mimic of either flower or thought process ... clear through to Film's clear "blossoming" in the passage of light.
