Palindromes 1, 2, 3
Derived from my project Cruising to the Westward / Bound to the Eastward, I created a series of three palindromic videos that looped continuously on my desktop. The three palindromes read: 1. mood doom 2. boob 3. borrow or rob. I was interested in the palindrome and the loop’s circular structures. The type was set in motion by a fan meant to symbolize the directionality of wind and sails while the desktop background, a photograph of water, referenced the Pacific Ocean. The project was intended to have a more direct connection to the inspiration source of Cruising to the Westward / Bound to the Eastward, a whaler’s log that documented two voyages taken by the ships Marcella and George & Susan.
