Many thanks to Craig Wilsie and the after-school-care team at Green Elementary School for working with us on this. We lucked out and got just the right weather to eliminate the shadow issues we had on the test shoot. A sincere thanks to Alex Graham and Oscar Velasquez who helped me grip this thing. The video below shows the set-up. This project is being supported by the San Diego Foundation Creative Catalyst Fund and MOPA San Diego.
When the series is complete I want it to work like a mural. This piece will show the number of kindergarteners who ride the swings in a day. Broadly speaking, I'm interested in creating images of this city in our time. I can only imagine what this will look like to these kids once they're grown up.
