welcome to the asylum

the old clock factory on 61 East Main Street in Bristol, CT now houses many art collectives.

Initially instigated by Lindsay Vigue photography studio, artists are now abound in the dilapidated historic building.
In this clip, you will see Lindsay Vigue, Chris DuFour, the undefined poet and a bunch of the peeps in the Aesthetic Asylum.

"the Silent Camera" was conceived in 2009 and was inspired by the music of Arvo Part especially his piece "Silentium". I perceive the modern world as oscillating between two extremes that are analogous to two of Arvo Part's pieces: "Perpetuum Mobile" represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the sea of people surrounding you, the noise in the streets, the deadlines, the challenges and the lessons to learn, the new technologies and risks facing our civilization, the musical pieces you learn [or fail to master],.. etc. "Silentium" represents the resolution of every musical note, every spoken word and every movement of your day. It is the moment that you are most likely to remember after the day's noise has settled and its turbulence has subsided. It is the moment that we all crave and the moment that will allow us to persist to the next day when the Perpetuum Mobile cycle starts again.
