Dual World comes from W.E.B. DuBois’ concept of Double Consciousness. The title of the series is a play on the gaming term, dual wielding, for fighting with a weapon in each hand. The double exposure photos were made in-camera by shooting twice before advancing the film.
I shot Harper Fountain in Building C of Harper College, The Art Department. Today is the 3rd Anniversary of theCGproject and the origins of our story are in this hallway, which we now share as a place of employment. It’s also May Day, so I wanted to give a nod to the Labor Movement. This afternoon, I’ll join thousands of activists in the streets of Chicago to encourage Congress to find the courage to vote on Immigration Reform. Tomorrow, I’ll be back to work at Harper.
I get my color film developed at CSW Film Systems; the best kept secret in town.
