A vivid summer landscape plays host to golden brown grasses waving in lyrical rhythm, a lush forest and a stream of flowing water. An automobile muffler flounders in the stream, gasping for breath while a stainless steel kitchen pot flies playfully through the air, at ease amidst the trees and grasses. A longing for harmony within oneself and within one's environment is conveyed. By combining photography, 2D paint animation, image processing and live video with the visual elements of 3D graphics, Leslie Bishko has created a stunning work of computer animation.
