Only at a crisis do I see both the scene as I’ve been trained to see it (that is, with Renaissance perspective, three dimensional logic colours as we’ve been trained to see to call a colour a colour, and so forth) and patterns that move straight out before my eyes, so to speak… and it’s a very intensive, disturbing, but joyful experience. I’ve seen that every time a child was born… Now none of that was in Window Water Baby Moving and I wanted a childbirth film which expressed all of my seeing at such a time. – S.B.
