I've been enamored of Harry Potter's magical "moving pictures" lately: his dead parents, in a treasured photo, bounce him and smile at him. Erykah Badu did the same thing with her latest video, "Honey," in activating soulful album covers.
Images contain actions - dances - hidden in their folds, ready to be performed. We make them dance all the time: the images in our heads and the ones we "see" before us, in frames and screens, and caught in the aperture of our eyes. It all comes from one big scene, one big bag, one big blanket.
A still image is no less active than a moving picture, and a moving picture is no less focused than a still image. They're capable of the same impact, it's all a matter of how we focus and infuse our lense.
