A little hospital dance

Over the last weeks I have been finding moments in my work at the hospital where I am between things without something to do. These moments are short - less than 5 minutes. It is usually when I am done on one unit and have a couple of minutes before I am to be at the next unit. Usually I just take my time until I go into the next unit. Recently I have instead found out of the way places, and with my iPod Touch, have captured my self doing short improvisational movement sequences - each shot is only between 30 and 60 seconds. The spaces are mostly hallways and stairwells - I wanted to shoot some in the elevator, but I was never alone long enough. After I had some footage I began editing the material - again, on my iPod using iMovie - while commuting on the Metro and buses around DC. Below is the final video. Enjoy. Hopefully my next hospital video will consist of shots from the elevator....
