This excerpt from "Circumstances with some Earth & Sky" examines multiple separate, yet coexisting worlds drawn from footage I acquired at various sites in western North America and Hawaii. Fundamentally, this represents a type of diary without dates, of memories reconstructed that are both actualized and imagined to formulate a story. A story that took place in time and space, shaped by the earth and sky.
