INTO THE LANTERN Exhibit OPENS AT MAINE MARITIME MUSEUM
Happy to announce that our immersive installation Into the Lantern - which recreates the experience of being inside the eastern light at Two Lights in Cape Elizabeth, Maine just opened at the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine. Have you been there?
Christoph Gelfand (True Life Media) and I have worked hard for the past year-after getting our own set of keys (TRUE!) to the East Tower lighthouse to create a panoramic time-lapse from the top interior of the eastern light. We're talking about rain, sleet, snow, hail, wind, sunsets, birds, cargo boats passing and more over a full year of seasons and sunrises and sunfalls. We also made two documentary shorts, Beyond the Harbor (about the Portland Pilots) and Keeper (a brief history of lighthouse keepers) as well as three unique audio stories about: the untold story of women lighthouse keepers (thanks to Elinor DeWire), Modern Day Lighthouse Keeper USCG Tony Robb, and a whimsical story about how (or if) commercial fishermen in Maine still use our lighthouses these days. (Hint: rarely.)
Into the Lantern is a permanent exhibition so go on up and check it out!
