Family of Trees

Strangers' faces hold no secrets because the imagination does not invest them with any. But the face of a lover is an unknown precisely because it is invested with so much of oneself. It is a mystery, containing, like all mysteries, the possibility of torment.
- Another Country, by James Baldwin

Last night, I went to Midsummer Night 2oons last night at the M1-5 bar (which is either a reference to a globular cluster in the Pegasus constellation or a punk band). It was organized by 5 semi successful animators who convinced the bar that they could show their animations and drive people to buy drinks during happy hour, but could not convince them to let them use their 6 HD flat screen TVs and instead projected animations on the wall (over lamps) and had several audio issues. That being said, the idea was great, very good for them and their friends. I ran into Alyssa D, and we had a good time and The Adventures of Man Child seemed to be the favorite.

And also yesterday my dad asked me to photograph a tour he arranged of the new Cooper Union building for various architects and engineers of the School Construction Authority.



You can find a cute 1 minute recording of my lovely self at the
Sunnyside Sound Project and listen right HERE. Sabine Heinlein is a really cool lady who moved into the neighborhood a few years ago and apparently was inspired by her neighbors. I got to make friends with some crazy old ladies.

"Poor creatures, why must we destroy you? I'll tell you why. Order is the tide of creation, but yours is a species that worships the one over the many. You glorify your intelligence because it allows you to believe anything. That you have a destiny, that you have a right, that you have a cause, that you are special. That you are great. But the truth... you are born insane. And such misery, can't be allowed to spread."
