Did you know today is World Television Day? In recognition of the increasing impact television has on decision-making by bringing world attention to major issues, including economic and social issues, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed November 21 as World Television Day.
Television is a tool in our lives that isn’t inherently good or inherently bad. It all depends on how we choose to use it. My work and joy in life is filming the beauty and miracles of our natural world so that people everywhere can experience the gratitude and awe I feel even if they are unable to leave their homes. The video above gives a glimpse into the beauty of Moving Art being displayed on a Vizio P-Series television and shows how we can use beautiful new technology to turn our televisions into displays of fine art.
I choose to use television as a medium for addressing the lack of nature in our modern lives – a problem I refer to as Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD). We live in a fast paced society that doesn’t often grant us time to catch our breath which leaves us feeling disconnected and isolated. Through a process I call Visual Healing, I believe connecting to nature is an answer to this problem. Though my films that capture the miraculous beauty of our world, I hope I can help people cultivate a sense of connection, peace, and love by bringing the miraculous world we live in directly into their homes.
Television is a medium for which I am truly grateful because I believe it can be used to heal and improve our lives.
Feeling like you don’t have time to experience nature? Take some time to visit my short films currently on Netflix.
