Experiencing Interruptions?

Seabands and Tummydrops

Two cameras, four days, shuttered aboard a cruise liner from San Pedro, CA to Ensenada, MX and back again. Participant observation. A cruise ship as an open set. The home movie as a form of critical looking. Leisure time as cinematic time. Intersubjective grazing. Closeness and the zoom. Proxemics. Social abstraction. Slow comedy. An anti-spectacle of vacation time.
