Presenting The Huntington In Motion [video]

Posted on May 18, 2012 by Kate Lain | Comments (7)

We are excited to launch In Motion, The Huntington's new video project. It even has its own Vimeo presence and YouTube channel. In Motion will feature a variety of video series that will bring new light to the unique physical spaces, collections, and processes that constitute The Huntington.

Our first new series within In Motion is called Videre, which is Latin for to see. In this new regular feature to the blog we will play with the idea of re-seeing. The short videos will be explorations of sights, sounds, and sensing at The Huntington.

"A Song of Pebble and Line" focuses on the visual and aural textures of the Helen and Peter Bing Children's Garden at The Huntington. Featured prominently are the captivating and unassuming pebble chimes.

Also in the Videre series:
"Calendula Collection"
"A Study in Simulacra"

Kate Lain is the new media developer in the office of communications at The Huntington.


Fantastic little piece! I love the layering of the little sounds under the tines. It really draws me in.

Love this! What a calming and soothing piece!

What a cool series! Very smart use of the filmic medium.

Thanks for all the kind words, Jen, Linda, and Jim! Glad you like what we're doing. Stay tuned for more!

Very nice sharp images, and sharp editing. Pleasant!

Kate, I love the videre, especially the pebble chimes, you help us to have a new way of "seeing", keep up the wonder work. Grace

Thanks for watching and thanks for the kind words, Grace! More on the way soon...
