Pssst! Don’t tell anyone, but I’m secretly becoming addicted to Vimeo, and videos like this one don’t do anything to help me cope with it.
I’m a HUGE fan of finding short media to help illustrate a concept, inspire students, or challenge learners to try something they may never have attempted before. It’s rare that I can find a video that does all three, but I believe I’ve found one in this incredibly serene moving picture
I imagine this video could be useful in dozens of different ways, but the few that come to mind would be as a writing prompt in a composition or creative writing course, a slow motion example of water displacement in a science class, or as a challenge for video production students to capture an equally moving piece of imagery.
If you don’t agree, then at least you’ve had a few moments of Zen today…in fact, you should go back and watch it at least once more for fullest effect.
