11.11.11 : part three : the evening.

11.11.11 : part three : the evening.

Thank you so much for all the comments and love for part one & part two of our time capsule day for the 11.11.11 project – One Day on Earth.

This is quite a personal piece of work for me and my family, making it a BIG step for me to share… and I understand it may not be interesting to others, but to me… this is our life… how we are at this time, creating these moments, these everyday things, and I’m so glad I have them now forever. And by sharing it here I hoped it would inspire others…..

I’d LOVE to capture more people like this… really spend time with them, see their life… their ups & downs and make a time capsule to have forever, so please get in touch if you’d be interested. Otherwise you could register an interest in my formulating idea of showing you how I created this time capsule, so you can make one of your own… join my mailing list… I’ve created a brand new email subscribe form here…..

Part three is a Friday night at home of guitar playing, treats, ipods and hanging out and some more wonderfulness from Cosmo (who told us all about the disgusting Egyptians in part one…loved that!) but first there is his sulk, yes there is some grumpiness… illustrating the ups and downs of our family life…. oh and of course “stairway to heaven” which is the riff of the moment…

Thanks for being here…. x.

    This is so fascinating! I have been recording my moments and days with Gabi too, but I love how you put this together as a full day! Well done. You are brilliant! xo

    i don’t pay too much attention to photo blogs (but a few truly special ones) but getting a glimpse into the beautiful perspective you share is such a gift. my small girl and i have watched your amazing slideshows together. she is yearning like wildfire to move to london or paris, and so pines away for the simple but perfect pictures on the blog.

    the most perfect photos i take are of our world in all it’s grit and color and wonder, of my children in all their raw perfection. you have captured something so special and true, and it rings as such as much to another mother as it must to you. wonderful stuff. i would love to incorporate the video art into my own repertoire. and you are a reminder to me to encourage other families to drop the sunday best and perfect light, and let me in to document what i find so lovely in my own.

    love it!

    Space dust, guitars, and ice mining. Looks like a perfect way to spend an evening. xxx

    Wonderful videos, Xanthe! Very inspiring! I just signed up for your new newsletter, and am soooo interested in how you make this art. I would love to participate in a workshop or e-course. How fun! Thanks so much for sharing your life with us.

    I just finished watching all three videos and they’re so lovely. The way you captured your day and mixed video and photography is simply beautiful. It really seems like you had a peaceful day.

    To many more…

    just lovely! it is so hard to share our personal lives, we want everything to be perfect or the ‘perfect’ that perceive anyway! this has given me the incentive to try and capture a day of our lives, however routine oriented and simple. there really is something to be said for simplicity, love and authenticity. thank you for sharing Xanthe. i will send you what I create when it is done. and look forward to hearing more about the e-course.

    I’m in love with that little whispered “I don’t like the filming…”. Don’t we all have a somebody who feels that way? He and my girl would get along – not only does she know all about Egyptian mummies but I get a lot of hands in my lenses. These are wonderful, Xanthe, all three videos. You inspire me to get over my own fears and start sharing my video work. So far, most of it has been for me alone….

    ah, those lanky boy arms, the sulking, the music — all heaven. LOVE it. living life in the moment — that’s what you did on 11-11-11. xo

    This is wonderful! What a lovely record of your beautiful family. This makes me want to turn back the hands of time and film my kiddos. And I loved Cosmo and his “ice mining” tutorial…as did my eight year old daughter…I think I know what I’ll be finding in my refrigerator!
