Tom Faison, Towson University, Time Living As & Time Living On: An Island
All iPhone footage. In the summer of 2015 I lived all alone in a tree house on an island in the middle of the Potomac River. In the winter I traveled, equally alone. I tried as best I could to plunge inside myself and I found just a man. A man who can splash, make waves, and push through to clarity all he wants. But the water will settle, and the looking glass will be swallowed back up.
