The girl is 16 today.

I'm proud of her. High honor roll this year at school.

And I'm bragging because I'm an awesome dad who found her an awesome car.

Is a translation available?

That's a pretty neat thing, and I can't help but think it would be even better if I knew what he was saying!!!

Pretty cool.

Beautifully done, but without a translation it is useless to me.

I think the point of it, Visual Music is the rhythm of the movement and the beauty therein. Compare it listening to music without words. Are the Brandenburg Concertos useless?

Having the words leads one to get caught up in the meaning and miss the message. Ever have the experience of listening to someone speak a foreign language where you didn't know what was being said but you could tell the person was angry or happy or in love? You are picking up on other cues and using your mind in a different way to interpret what is being expressed.

Similar to not speaking a language but relying on other cues such as facial expressions, body language, pitch, intonation, etc. to understand what is being said, imagine someone who lacked a particular sense, in this case hearing. How would you convey the experience of listening to music to someone who couldn't hear? You'd need to express rhythm, melody, tempo, crescendoes, diminuendoes, and so on some other way. Here, he is using his body to sign with certain emotional expression. Compare the difference between a computer generated voice reading a passage and an impassioned speaker reading the same passage. The words are identical but the meaning changes. You even hear this in songs covered by different people. Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower is a completely different song from Dylan's, as is Santana's She's Not There from the Zombies'.

I once heard an expression, "Dark to the mind, but radiant to the heart" I think that is a good clue to deciphering the meaning of this video.

I understand what feet is saying. I understood it before he said it.

I agree with Fargon, it was beautifully done, graceful, even.

But, if the man is speaking/signing actual words, I am not getting the full monty if I don't know what those words are.

And, yes, I should probably know ASL, at least some, but, I don't.

It's hard to say. I did a series of photographs that were abstract. They were of ordinary things but taken in such a way as to remove context and thereby, identity.

The usual reaction was fascination, wonder, puzzlement - with people spending a lot of time looking at them and guessing what they were looking at, making up wild stories with each other about them and ALWAYS begging me to tell them what the photo was of.

For a while I would tell people if they really wanted to know. Invariably, when I did the excitement would drain from their faces and they'd say, "Oh." with a pathetic tone of resignation.

And that was it, knowing the answer pissed all over their parade and destroyed their interest in and enjoyment of the photos.

Sometimes, the questions are better than the answers.
