Joy the Silent Movie
4minutes 44 seconds

I created this community video art piece while at A.I.R.Studio Paducah. I asked participants to share their joy with me. I decided to make it silent to emphasize the visual joy. I hope that by viewing this piece it brings you joy and makes you smile. When I was young I performed a piece at summer camp that started with the lines "Joy is like and Upside down Rainbow, it's a Frown turned Upside Down."... I want to create joy and spread joy. For everyone that stood in front of my camera, I took still images on a Fuji Instax Wide Film. Everyone was given a print. Some received prints that did not appear on video... I hope to continue this project. Please embrace Joy while viewing and really feel Joy. follow me on Instagram Muffin Bernstein
