HUH??

Perhaps someone can explain the purpose or value of this, a herky-jerky-out-of-focus waste of time?
Needs image stabilization and focus, both figuratively and literally! What a crock, the good reviews MUST have been written by himself, family and friends. You have got to be kidding, this must be a massive joke played upon the mindless feeble masses. If there were in-the-minus-reviews this would get a -10. Trust me, don't waste your time.

Seeing

Pouringdown is inspired. Inspired in that it’s art that’s possible for anyone to create in today’s plug and play world. Snap a photo with your camera, or Polaroid or cell phone – it’s possible. The curiosity Liss creates in each of us is like the need to eat or sleep – it’s necessary. Daniel wants us to see it all. He shows us that it’s not just walking to work every morning, it’s not just walking your daughter to the park or witnessing the first green of the spring thaw, but it’s life. It’s his life sort of painted over our own. It’s real and it’s beautiful and sincere.

The whole post is a reminder to stop and see. Pouringdown is an inspiration to go create something from anything and know that it’s art simply by the merit of creation.

To quote a friend, “You can’t help but to make art, art is a symptom of living.”

Mesmerized

Pouringdown is a rare and exquisite work of art. The site cannot be categorized or labeled by any societal idealization, brand or perception but, is as poignant to you as it is to me, and never for the same reasons. The uniqueness is, in itself, a lone testament to art in its basest and purest form.

Through the most blatant and sincere forms of merit, using these video blogs, Liss provides his viewers with insight into the lives of his daughter, himself, his wife, and most astonishingly, you (the viewer, the watcher, the voyeur) .

Each bit of light, color and movement belong exclusively to the creator. But, as Daniel manipulates these very ordinary moments of everyday life in to the every day lives of user 1 and user 2, what he creates is a surrealism that sparks something within each of us that poses a question. The questions are never the same, nor do any of the responses require a moment more poignant than any other, but each signifies communality between creator and ‘created for.’

We are seeking something or we wouldn’t have come here. Liss doesn’t choose to show us his vision, we choose to see it. Space and light is as palpable in his hands as clay and water on a potter’s wheel.
