There's a lot There

"There's a lot There" is a video of a lake-scape shot through a window screen at sunset. The sky is a beautiful bleed of colour, there is a rainbow effect on the screen which wavers about from the hand-held shot and the perfectly calm lake is like glass. It is an almost perfect moment disrupted by a million mosquitoes trying to get in. It is at once beautiful, hopeful, humorous and pathetic.
