Homer Simpson at LONGSHOT, 2010

The print above sold as part of LONGSHOT, a fundraiser for Photo Center Northwest this year. "Isolation Chamber" was a room set for a Popular Photography seminar at the Seattle Hilton. One of the instructors was using the image as a screen saver.

The silent cartoon character "listening" to his portable audio device and dancing to an empty room resonated with the invisible order that technology promises with (hardly) any prompting from human onlookers.

But if Tom Robbins is right and everything is truly alive, then Homer was happily dancing and the chairs were keenly attentive. I enjoyed making the image and the print. What has become an annual event was very successful this year and the exhibit of results from shooters around the world made for a wonderful exhibit of time and space.--ams
