Back when Mr. Pereira and I first created this blog, I posted this video that explores the idea of homes and the role they play in our lives. However, because it was one of my first posts, no one was commenting on it. That is a shame, because it is one awesome video. So I decided to bring it back for you guys to observe and enjoy. Think of it as a blog's greatest hits.
This video comes to us from thismustbetheplace, a web video series about how different people define what a home is. Clearly Chong Gon Byun here, a Korean living in Brooklyn, at least partially defines home as a work of art. But what I like about this video, the reason I think it is interesting, is the way in which it focuses only on details. Byun doesn't ever say, "My opinion of home is . . ." Rather, the camera overwhems the viewer with details and allows them to draw their own conclusions. I think this method really invites the viewer in.
