Punch Cards Are Everywhere: The Scranton Lace Company

Once the largest producer of Nottingham Lace, The Scranton Lace Company was established in 1890 and remained in business until 2002 when the factory was shutdown mid-shift and abandoned shortly afterwards.

In the pictures and video, you will see a teeny tiny part of the huge industrial complex including the only remaining loom, power house, numerous catwalks & scattered punch cards.

"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.
