Picture of the Day
October 13, 2018

spacer When invited to project video for five nights straight in a cold, hard
parking lot, it helps to cozy it up a bit, so I finagled a freight damaged patio furniture
set from some wheeler-dealers in Kent, purchased a propane heater, set up a tabletop drive-in theater 
complete with toy car audience, and put out some bowls of mixed nuts for that outdoor living room feel. Tube amp
on tailgate, honking huge rental projector lighting up the dark grey wall from atop lumber rack. Borealis Fest
is a showcase of state-of-the-art video and light technology, but my motley mise en scene complete with Jeff's '71 VW bus
and wafting nag champa made it feel more like a Dead show caravan. I stuck another finger in the past by projecting head-
stone inscriptions from Lake View Cemetery, turning the whole building into a monument for a city that's a ghost of itself.
