MWRA Wind Turbine Time-Lapses

Early this morning I went out to shoot some time-lapse videos of a wind turbine I really hadn’t explored up-close, the 1.8 MW Vestas at the MWRA pumping station in Everett. It has been a while! Almost nine months since I last shot this turbine, and almost two years since I shot the Northwind 100

New MWRA Turbine Icosacomposites

It was finally clear enough and “warm” enough, and I actually had a day off, so I went down to Ten Hills Park near Assembly Square and shot some wind turbine footage. I thought I would make a 20-layer icosacomposite of the 1.8MW turbine at the MWRA facility, but I couldn’t find a location that

Turbine Stills, not Time-Lapse

I went this morning to see if I could get a time-lapse movie from the location in Ten Hills Park under the commuter rail bridge, but there was barely any wind and the turbine was parked. Since I was there, I figured I get some sunrise stills: That’ll be it on the turbine images until

Smeared Turbine Videos

One of the main reasons I started doing my turbine studies is because I was fascinated with the interplay of light as the blades moved through their rotary space. Of course, the videos I’ve already presented haven’t really addressed that portion of my interest, because other interesting things got in the way. However, I started

MWRA Turbine Time-Lapse

It’s weird… I thought I’d gotten the wind turbine thing over with, when I did the moonlit turbine video that went until sunrise early one December morning… but here we are again. This is a different turbine than the small Northwind 100 on the McGlynn campus. This is the 1.8 MW installation at the MWRA

Three Shorts in Glovebox Film Festival 2012

Well, the results are in, and all three film shorts I submitted made it into the 2012 Glovebox Film Festival. Glovebox is a couple of folks crusading to get interesting art out in front of the public, and I first showed with them when I arrived in Beantown in 2008. Another short of mine was

Full-Moon Turbine Nocturne

Finally, a night near the full moon that wasn’t overcast. November’s syzygy was a complete bust, and the night before last was completely cloudy. Last night was beautiful, there wasn’t even any horsetail cirrus or little puffy clouds. Those would have been a nice addition, if they had been present, but I’m pretty happy with

MWRA Icosacomposite with MBTA Trains

Here’s another layered video of the new megawatt turbine at the MWRA. I couldn’t find a good place to park that also had a dynamic view of the turbine, but this particular view is interesting because it overlooks the MBTA Orange Line tracks going across the river in Everett. Several cars make their ghostly appearance
