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.

A hike with Walks & Rambles meetup group in RI last Sunday ascending Mount Tom in a tiny bit of snow.

The following tracks are played in order:

Rafael Anton Irisarri – Für Alina on Reverie [Immune, 2010]
Richard Skelton – Of The Last Generation on Landings [Type, 2010, Reissue]
Nest – Far From Land on Retold [Serein, 2010]

An Infinite Luney Loop Is Running In The Sky

This clip was shot on Old Saybrook’s causeway between 10PM & midnight yesterday as the moon nears its full size.
The sky was cloudy and it looked like the moon was trying to navigate its way through the fluffs executing the same maneuver over and over again.
This video was inspired by the music of William Basinski especially the famous Disintegration Loops.
All music played in the clip is from The Silent Ballet Volume 16:
1- Kluwekracht IV by Bas Van Huizen
2- Shattering Surface by Acorn Falling
3- Marraskuu by Ous Mal

Master & Commander

A walking tour around San Diego’s submarine museum looking at the different ships and the Russian Submarine moored there.

Among the interesting ships is the HMS Surprise where Anthony Hopkins et al. made the famous movie, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World & of course B-39 stands as a reminder of the cold war era.

Manhattan Of Trees

This is the first in a series of posts with pictures & videos captured in many parts of California earlier this month while my long time friends, Bilal & Ahmed, were visiting the States.

We started in San Francisco, headed North on US 101 towards Redwoods national park immersing in the beauty of the scenes on the way to Crescent City on the border with Oregon. The following YouTube playlist features 5 videos captured on the road and on foot while in Redwoods country.
