Sam Easterson

Video artist Sam Easterson attaches harmless cameras to the backs of different animal species, so that we can share a ______'s eye view...in this case a buffalo's eye view. I found this unedited footage, mostly of the buffalo drinking and grazing, but near the end a few shots of the buffalo walking in its herd and locking horns with a rival. Go ahead and be 'one with the buffalo' for 5 minutes. The sounds of it's breathing, snuffing, snorting and slurping are truly amazing. Enjoy!

Wunderkammer looks great! This footage is magical. There is one amazing moment when the buffalo is drinking water and he pulls back and he/we see his/our reflection. I was a buffalo for a second.
