Small sleepy beachtown: Cayucos, California.
A streaming webcam on the rooftop of
the Surfshop "Good Clean Fun" swivels back and forth between the
pier and Morro Rock in the distance.
A quiet Monday morning. Surprising
gusts of wind that make it a bit difficult to inflate and hold on
to the balloon. Nobody around during the first half hour or so -the
surf isn't good. Then, out of nowhere, a friendly guy in a green
jacket appears. He cleans out the wastebaskets on the beach and
is willing to help me hold the huge balloon while I paint my message
on it. Happily I wave it in front of the camera until it bursts!
I sit in front of my computer in Toronto
and go to the beach looking for ij. On camera she is a lone figure
wearing a blue jacket with a hood. She sits on the rail, pulls out
a balloon and starts to inflate it. I can see her fighting against
the wind though it seems quite contained as I passively view the
scene from the comfort of my studio. A man appears. I watch him
help her steady the balloon. She dances around with the message,
letting the wind direct her movements. A3 - Anytime, Anywhere,
