Element: Water

Water is essential to life yet it is one of the most pressing elements affected by climate change.  It is the first element that Homegrown Stories artists are addressing this year.

Warming oceans, rising water levels, flooding rivers, polluted water sources- what can be done to reverse the damage?  Below are videos that document and witness while others investigate and interpret.

How can you help?  The Thrist Project is just one of many organizations tackling the issues of water and climate change.

Homegrown Stories and The Trails Project

During 2018-2019 Homegrown Stories collaborated with a group of videomakers on a 360 online experiment.  Using the prompt ‘trails’, artists were asked to create short observational videos, inspired by the prompt and making use of 360 technology.

The results harken back to the earliest forms of moving pictures- the one shot, the travelogue, the diorama.
