This project by Will Hazell I thought to be brilliant. First things first when he displays it, the videos are displayed in a portrait format a.k.a. he flips the screens on their sides making them portrait. Simple thought, but a little bit revolutionary if i don't say so myself. Then he also has the an incredibly sensitive eye for shots. He sets up his shot he doesn't just shoot what he sees. He Also manages to invite the viewer in such a way that there is not outward pressure other than the beauty of the videos, and he lets the viewer come to their own conclusions rather than assuming they need direction, and must be "led" into meaning. I love his work.

This is my favorite piece of his, Give it ALL of your attention. Also make sure you expand the video to whole screen.
