There is no way around change. We all must change, whether it be physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually. It is natural to resist change, but it is easier to let go and let be.
While I was working on my Paranormal Project, I came across movie director Ron Howard’s contest on Youtube called Project Imagin8tion. Unfortunately, I was too late for the first part of the contest that involved setting, mood, and character which was intended to inspire a short film. However, I still had an opportunity for the second part of the contest (sponsored by Canon) which involved using script inserts from the movie and interpreting them with photography. You can imagine how excited I was when I saw that the movie not only had a paranormal theme, but also used words and all of the other creative and imaginative things right up my alley!
I had less than a week to create up to 8 photos for each script insert if I wanted to enter the contest. This was right before Christmas, so I was traveling, making my gifts, and working, but somehow I managed to come up with 6 out of 8 that I was happy with.
Script insert: “Lisle moves closer, pushing branches as she goes. And that’s when she sees it.”
Script insert: “Suddenly, the creature transforms into the figure of a woman.”
Script insert: “She slowly and gingerly steps back from the edge.”
Script insert: “She is Joanne, his wife, a beautiful ghost.”
Script insert: “A hollow wind echoes all around.”
Script insert: “Suddenly, I was in this place I’d never seen… And everything was white.”
For several months I’ve been working on what I call the Paranormal Project. It’s another of my artography projects, but the reason it’s taken several months to even begin is because I needed the right material to do so. I have a ton of photos, but if I don’t have what I need to make what I see in my mind, then I have to find it.
This is the first of a series. I call it “Ghost Town”.
History repeats itself, whether it be in world history or those of the relationship type. When I started creating this work, I didn’t have this in mind – at least not consciously.
But history, does in fact repeat itself unless we do something to change it.
