When we finished taking down the backyard last week it was unexpectedly sad, we didn't realize just how magical it was to stand in this whole little world that we had built for the film until it was gone. I think when we rebuild it some of that feeling will return but it just won't be quite the same and it definitely won't be in our backyard...!I think I get that whole Walter Benjamin (Brent in the distance asks, "Who?") aura thing now and I realize that no essay can ever truly explain it. Geez, I wonder how Benjamin would have felt about Gravity as a whole?! Maybe I should channel my former scholarly self for this one and write up a proper essay of sorts, "Art in the Age of Digital Film" perhaps...? Or not...(jumps in pool)! Arizona or bust!
