Birds in a Harbor

A photo remix by DoAn Forest. A friend, Youki Cropas, had taken a series of photos of birds in a harbor in Istanbul. Played in a slideshow, the photo sequence was hypnotizing. I asked for permission to remix them, and this is the result. My concept was of a lonely merchant sailor watching TV in a Korean harbor, different thoughts going through his head. The music was made by remixing and filtering Billie Holiday’s “I’m A Fool To Want You.”
