Drawing on Ross Gibson’s work on practice-led research, I experiment with the use of video in socioecological research through a pair of field sites in central Kentucky USA. I discuss artist-researcher observations made with video as these two stream restoration projects unfold and highlight my process. Video, I find, can be both medium and method; it can be datum as well as artwerk. Through my experiences, I also probe into the affective ecologies and atmospheres in the two riparian environments. These inquiries provide insights into ecological encounter and the art/science nexus at the locus of video experimentation and restoration.
