"Water Gods Control the Seas"




For this project, I photographed a flat screen that had been installed at a new bus stop in Manhattan. There was an error message from the computer in the middle of the screen as a trailer for a show was playing on the screen. I thought the images were riveting and found it interesting how the error message just stubbornly "sat" in the middle of the screen as this amazing footage played on the screen. I was interested in capturing the images with my camera in a "still like" fashion. I then cut the error message out of the photos and "folded" the images together to create a new image All in all, I have about sixty images from this project that I would like to show. Please contact me @ aplupiani@gmail.com if you are interested in showing this work in your gallery/space.
