The interpretation in this video really hits home for me. I have always thought that there was something lovely about making art that depicts your family and the passage of time. I love the sense of quietude and contemplation as these people take time out of there daily life to be in relationship with nature and each other. This piece is like a time capsule that will continue to speak to us about the universal experience of humanity for centuries to come.
