Light Echoes

Traces of light are broadcast onto landscapes by a moving laser aboard a train. In Light Echoes, we collapse time and space into images which document the historical pulses of data in the form of light reflecting off earth and matter.

This is the first expression of an ongoing series.

I needed a distraction from that last post. So here.

Flying Lotus Remix - Let it Go (Reefer)

i don’t know what’s more interesting,
children soldiers
or
a gritty show of masculinity with wigs and dresses
either way
it haunts me.
in the best way.

The Knife: A Tooth For An Eye. Direction: Roxy Farhat & Kakan Hermansson. DOP: Aida Chehrehgosha. Editing: Roxy Farhat.

‘A Tooth For An Eye’ deconstructs images of maleness, power and leadership. Who are the people we trust as our leaders and why? What do we have to learn from those we consider inferior? In a sport setting where one would traditionally consider a group of men as powerful and in charge, an unexpected leader emerges. A child enters and allows the men to let go of their hierarchies, machismo and fear of intimacy, as they follow her into a dance. Their lack of expertise and vulnerability shines through as they perform the choreography. Amateurs and skilled dancers alike express joy and a sense of freedom; There is no prestige in their performance. The child is powerful, tough and sweet all at once, roaring “I’m telling you stories, trust me”. There is no shame in her girliness, rather she possesses knowledge that the men lost a long time ago.

Reposting this because it may convince doubters to listen to the album (which for my money will be the obvious contender-to-beat for record of the year), and—don’t hold me to this, but—with its airy polyphonic textures and a new level of depth in Karin’s voice, it may just be the greatest song that The Knife have ever produced.

you do realize
it’s the minimalism that got me
the simplicity of the message.
i love this june thing.

Storytellers: SPECIAL One-Time Show
Friday, April 19, 2013 8-10p
$10 admission
Featuring Andrew Carpenter of Apollo Live & Kriss Mincey of American Idol

There’s this incredible open mic family in Baltimore that I’m apart of and in 10 days we’re bringing the show back for one time only. If you’re not familiar with “Storytellers” and the awesomeness that it is - taste a lil bit of what we have here….

This was a performance done by Grammy-nominated artist, Carolyn Malachi during my farewell show. She sang her single “Orion” off of her album, “Lions, Fires, and Squares”. I had the pleasure of doing the photography for the album cover and without realizing - this had my work published all over mainstream media. Excellent publicity.

Come see more greatness…
I hope you’re able to make it…

This was an inpromptu performance by Marc Evans and myself. It was discussed earlier that evening to maybe have a “scatversation”. I’m not big on the zodiac jazz but this created a pretty nice response by the Scorpios in our audience. 

I hope to see you there…

This was a performance done by Sarafina where she sang a soft ballad called “Scorpio”. I’m not big on the zodiac jazz but this created a pretty nice response by the Scorpios in our audience. 

I hope to see you there…
