Simple, everyday things amuse me. For example, a piece of paper blowing in the wind..
It was made by Sydney based artist Gary Deirmendjian.
1. a wondering through city fringe laneways;
2. a scrap of paper torn from a nearby skip;
3. a breeze; and
4. a pocket camera aimed with the hope of catching something interesting.
Gary says “It was all inspired and spurred on by the moment, as in there was no preconceived idea or intent to begin with – it took form as I began the filming. The breathing was added in editing.”

It made me think of the plastic bag in the wind scene from the American Beauty movie (I love that scene).
“Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in.”
