Projection at the HOP

[gallery type="slideshow" ids="1424,1421,1423"] This past October, I visited Hanover, NH for the day with a friend. It happened to be the 50th Anniversary of the Hopkins Center of the Arts (HOP) at Dartmouth College, of which we were unaware until we heard music playing in the square. It was dark and we were exploring some of the old buildings, so it startled us; it sounded like it was coming right out of the sky. We thought it might be some kind of performance, so we followed the music and it led us to the HOP. There was a video being projected right on the building itself. It was a piece called Five Windows by a British artist named Ross Ashton. There are a few segments to the video, capturing dance and colors and then there was a segment of geometric shapes and blueprints of the building being built up and deconstructed. It was very cool. It played on a loop throughout the night and we found ourselves repeatedly drawn to the exhibit, along with countless other interested spectators, including the couple in this series of photos. I tried to capture the final 3 frames of the video as it tore across the screen until there was nothing left. I edited the series to coincide with the movement of the original piece and I have to say, I kind of like it!

The Storm

[gallery link="file" columns="4"] Remember in the 80's when people used the phrase "TGIF" to describe literally every Friday? Well, this week is one that completely reinforces the meaning of the acronym. I decided in celebration of my week from hell coming to a close, I would express how my week has been and more importantly, how I would like it to end in a series of photos I am calling simply, "the storm".

I love these pictures because they feature one of my favorite people in the whole world. I am extremely lucky to have about 10 amazing "best friends" in my life, but today, on March 26, I want to celebrate one. This is a friendship that began on a middle school bus on the way home from a singing competition about 20 years ago. Since that fateful ride home together, we have seen each other through good times, hard times, loss, accomplishments, fear, relationships, rocky roads, incredible JOYs, and music. I can't wait to see what the next 20 hold. For Bethany on her birthday, with love...
