Die Blumen Sind Schön

New work! 
Here is a video piece I have been working on, tentatively titled Die Blumen Sind Schön (which was one of the main things my mother learned to say in German when living in Germany). It is constructed from vhs garden footage that my uncle shot in 1994-95.  I reshot it and changed some of the speed, framing, etc.  Still a work in progress, thinking about whether I should add audio or not.
