Art + Innovation

Every now and then, a student will surprise me.  My grade 9 art class is studying the Group of Seven, Tom Thomson and Emily Carr as part of their final task.  They have some written work as well as a creative component to complete:  one that is somehow inspired by or related to the work of the artists we are studying.

Dylan smiled when he told me that he woke up at 5:30, packed up his phone and the tripod he borrowed from class, and went down to the Red Rock Marina to capture the sunrise with time-lapse photography.

I was floored!  He showed me the video this morning, and I told him he should upload it to YouTube so we could share it with our township (and the rest of the world!).  Who knows, maybe it might be used to tempt a few people to make the trip to Red Rock!  If you’d like to leave a message for Dylan, feel free to post a comment.

    Incredible! I live in the beautiful Smoky Mountains but sometimes miss being near the water. I just may have to watch this to remedy that feeling of missing out. Thanks so much for sharing your work!

    Gorgeous… Great eye for composition. I like the lines and shapes in your video – and the placement of the mast just where the sun rises is perfect!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    Dylan, I grew up near Lake Michigan. One of the things I miss the most about being near the water in watching the sun rise. In fact, friends and I would go before school to watch it together when I was in high school. Your timelapse made me remember all this today and ache for home. #nailedit
