I recently purchased a GoPro Hero2 camera. Mainly these are designed for adventure / extreme sports but their extreme wide angle lens, waterproofing and HD video make them interesting for art projects. I decided I needed one initially for the Lower Bar Collective project I'm working on. Underwater / seascape footage would work well with experimental / ambient / post-rock.

Yesterday (Waitangi Day here in New Zealand) I went out sailing with my father-in-law and took the camera with me to dangle off the side of the yacht. Between shooting these abstract / textural images, I also shot a more standard clip recording the sailing experience.

The music is 'From the Dust... We Ran to Greet the Dawn' by Hammock.
