Signs (2009, 43MB, 8:02 min.)

Signs by Seth Nicolas Stephens jumps around
the country, landing in titillating scenes of freezing
cold park jugglers, cyclists pursued by helicopters,
and warm dumplings.
The video elegantly explores the delivery of a poem,
weaving together the intimacy of its words with the
monumental scale of strip mall signage.
These tales of a vagabond are recalled with a mix
of nostalgia and loss as if the author is either drafting
his memoir or a writing to a past love.
