spaces change

I've begun a new visual blog on my newly completely redesigned website: natalieraymond.com

Since I'm moving more into image making I thought this apt.

I'm not sure what will happen/what I will do with this blog, but it's been around since 2012 so I am disinclined to delete it.

hearing with your eyes

I think a lot about the McGurk effect. The effect is a perceptual phenomenon in which a person "hears" what they see when audio & visual do not match up.

I feel this is the foundation of concrete poetry. Something I've been playing with recently as part of my poem-a-day project.

day 467 - falling

day 469 - cacophony

day 472 - lady dawn (after sappho as translated by anne carson)

how time moves
like a bat
between trees.

the river seine. a snapshot taken when I wandered paris alone as a teenager.
it seems like a moment from another life.

ventured out into the wilds this past weekend to shoot my newest little short film project.
fossil falls is a spectacularly weird geological feature about 2.5 hours north east of los angeles.

the film, finite, follows the last human being alive as she makes a decision about what remains of her life.

our lives

I've always had a secret fascination with photojournalism.
I don't think I'm very good at it, but I like to try.
I started photographing protests with my 35mm film camera in high school when I attended the large anti-war protests in Portland. This past weekend I ventured out to the March for Our Lives in downtown LA. More photos on my instagram
