Merganser Migration

Mergansers are in migration and seen from a drone looking straight down at the waterway. The swimming mergansers are crossed by flying gulls and herons.

This film is an expression of my engagement with line and the contrapuntal movement of multiple lines in music and imagery.

The forces guiding the paths of the mergansers are similar to those moving the hand of an artist; physics, history, genetics, culture, and the idiosyncrasies of the line makers own imagination and requirements.
