Portal-Mirror-Lens 4 2010

Glass lenses are fascinating, they turn our surroundings upside down. Maybe you have taken a lens and focused the little image on a white wall, or paper. Our own eyes do it too, though our brains somehow reverse this, and turn it all right side up in our minds, thankfully. And glass lenses allow me to make images, freezing the photons into a clear re-assemblage.  SWPC photographer Hashim Kirkland is in front of a large projector with its glassy eye and metal cover partly lifted off. I had him raise his hands like singing or shouting. Red light streams away from his open mouth,  and envelopes him and the area around. Mark helped to do some lighting too.
