Here’s an update on my multilayer holographic composite project, with 26 new handwriting samples. As always, if you’d like to contribute, here are the directions.
One of the pieces in my show “A Difference of 8 Protons” up at Bromfield Gallery through the month of March is an ephemeral installation piece involving dry ice and glass. As a record of the piece, I have taken time-lapse videos of the installation at a few different angles and have them up in
Just in time for Turkey Day, two more composites from my Hyannis commute. Monday’s I shot from the back window, so it features the heating elements on the glass. In order, going, returning, combined: Today I tried to beat holiday traffic by leaving a little earlier, so the going composite has a lot of sunglare
This week I just went for a straight-ahead approach, and didn’t change the camera orientation between trips. This enabled me to get going, returning, and complete commute composites. Monday: An interesting effect to notice, because we’re back on Standard Time, the returning commute is now shifted substantially toward sunset, so the colors are much redder.
This week I decided to focus on my car’s side mirrors. I did the passenger side on Monday, and the driver’s side today. I did a normal shot going down to the Cape, and a close-up coming back. I’ll display these as pairs, with the wide shots together and the close-ups together. The passenger-side wide-angle
Two new composites of my commute to Cape Cod. The first: training the camera on myself as I drive through southern Massachusetts: It was warmer in the afternoon, so I took off my black wool coat. The second set concentrates on the instrument panel. You can see the speedometer and tachometer needles clustering at different
Last weekend I took a whirlwind tour of Las Vegas for my mother-in-law’s 75th birthday. I didn’t have much time, but I was able to get footage for three composite video pieces. The first was set up on the footbridge over Spring Mountain Rd connecting the Wynn/Encore complex with The Palazzio. I was interested in
More commutes going up! As I’m getting to know how the suction cup mount works, I’m discovering that the “gorilla” interlocking system is not as amazingly strong as its name would imply. So for three of these commutes, the mount shifted during the time-lapse. The first time, going to the Cape on Monday, was fine.
The joys of suction cup mounts! Here’s a set with the mount stuck to the sunroof glass and the camera pointing forward. (The camera was also hanging upside-down, but the joys of Photoshop means that that is easily corrected.) The two images, “Going” and “Returning”, are somewhat different because I take the camera with me
