Project Magic Lantern | 02.05.2023










Project Magic Lantern

I have always been fascinated by repurposing old optics and marrying them with new technology. I recently acquired 2 early 1900s magic lanterns and engineered a way to put a Nikon D90 body in each of them, turning them into a unique photography platform. These are the first images I captured through their 120-year-old glass. They are images of some of the oldest architecture in Albany, New York.

9/11: Just Under the Surface


Just Under the Surface
Watercolor, pencil, mixed media.

For so many, that bright, severe clear Tuesday 21 years ago is just under the surface.
It will always be just under the surface.

The clear blue of the skies of this painting, known as “severe clear”, an aviation term used by pilots to describe unlimited visibility, both above and below the horizon line, are constructed from the portraits of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Firefighters and paramedics killed: 343
Number of NYPD officers: 23
Number of Port Authority police officers: 37
Number of WTC companies in the towers that lost people: 128
Number of employees who died in the North Tower: 1,462
Number of employees who died in Tower Two: 630
Number of people killed at the Pentagon: 125
Number of people killed on planes on 9/11: 246
Number of employees lost at Cantor Fitzgerald: 658
Number of nations whose citizens were killed in attacks: 115
Days fires continued to burn after the attack: 99
Number of people who lost a spouse or partner in the attacks: 1,609
Estimated number of children who lost a parent: 3,051
Estimated injuries on 9/11: 6000
Percentage of Americans who knew someone hurt or killed in the attacks: 20%

It’s impossible to know how many lives have been lost in the years since the 9/11 attacks due to suicide, war, and medical complications. 21 years later, those numbers now dwarf the original death toll of that Tuesday in September 2001.

No day shall erase you from the memory of time. -Virgil

Troy Skyline (Looking North) Found Object Art

 

Troy Skyline (Looking North)
Line and Wash on a Book Page, Found Object Art

Description: Troy, NY: In the early morning hours of March 6th, 2021, the historic building that housed Hill's Stationery, and a handful of apartments, burned in spectacular fashion. The fire shot flames as high as 50 feet into the winter sky producing an orange glow that could be seen from all over the city, and the towns across the river.

The next day, I captured numerous images of the aftermath for a newswire service of an ice-encrusted shell of a building. The cars and trees on State Street were entombed in inches of ice and covered in soot.

The view from the parking garage behind Hill's is one of my favorites of the City of Troy. Over the years, I have captured it hundreds of times in all sorts of lighting and weather. In fact, there is a 22-foot version of one of those images in an office in Troy. On the parking deck, I found a few burnt pages from a book blowing in the cold breeze. The book was about Thomas Aquinas, and this particular page was about art and morality. I picked one up at the time knowing I would eventually make a piece of art of it.
