Day Ninety-Seven/Image Ninety-Seven

“Afloat” Image. Ceres Gallery. New York. Solo Show.

This is a very small tribute to Vince Wiggins, my friend and collaborator on the video, “Bread In The Sky.”

I came to Vince, while he was working at the Apple Store. I had been inspired by floating projected images in The Museum of Modern Art in New York. The projected images I saw were big shapes on the walls moving across corners and on the ceiling. I thought that I would like to do something like that, based on some collages I had done. In fact, I told Vince, I would like to take pieces of the collages and I would like to make a video about them, with a story. I would display the framed collages separately.

It took a while. We ended up diverting from the floating images and we came up with “Bread In The Sky”, which ended up being quite successful.

It was a lot of fun working with Vince. I had never collaborated with anyone before. He was always very positive. At the time, I had no computer skills at all, but I got to know the technology of this movie making very well. The tedious and long hours spent separating the images from the overall collage and getting the collage pieces to rotate. It ended up being a lot of fun.

Anyway, I could not have done it without Vince.
