"Certainly in 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' it doesn't say 'don't go to Afghanistan!'"Here's Addario on Feb. 11th talking to Teri Gross on Fresh Air, and here she is being interviewed on Al Jazeera America. Addario's career is chronicled on her wikipage, and in addition to an ICP Infinity Award, she's a MacArthur Fellow, class of 2009. To keep-up, follow her on twitter!
"Although her collection of cameras — a large photograph of dozens of them, old and new, acquired over 45 years — takes center stage here, many of the collections, like the Hawaiian souvenirs, are mundane objects. There are beads in all shapes and colors; pine cones, large and small; heart-shaped stones; shells from everywhere.
A vast display of artifacts complements the photos on the gallery walls. A couple of ceramic cows stand by the photograph of her miniature-cow collection (Bunnen grew up on a farm)."
"50 years later (after Higgs' prediction) you build the biggest machine ever built, 60 miles in circumference, most of it's in France, a bit of it's in Switzerland (10,000 scientists & 150 countries) - this huge thing -- you accelerate protons, the nuclei of hydrogen around this thing at 99.9999 percent the speed of light, they go around the 60 miles 11,000 times a second, we can collide 600 million of them together every second to recreate the conditions that were present less than a billionth of a second after the universe began.That's one huge camera, and I'm no physicist, but it may not be a camera in the traditional sense.
(We) photograph it in with the biggest digital cameras ever built. The one I work on called Atlas is 40m in diameter. A vast, vast thing! 7000 tons of digital camera in a cavern the size of St. Paul's Cathedral underneath the ground in Switzerland. And you find this thing that this guy, Peter Higgs predicted to exist 50 years ago because he did some sums."
"We are looking to raise $150,000 to cover production costs associated with the creation of the 1World1Family Tool-Kit. We already have a substantial amount of content "in the can," which needs to be reviewed, transcribed and turned into short video pieces. We need to create specific teaching and discussion guides for each short piece and the guides need to be translated into Spanish. We need to create step-by-step instructional materials for how to run a DDFR event, including associated film screenings, community photo-sharing sessions and community discussions on visual literacy. We need to develop best practices and business cases for Diversity & Inclusion training and facilitation guides. We need to create specific educational classroom guides and student activities using our existing content and conforming to Common Core protocols.Help them out, if you can, and don't forget to tune in on Feb. 16th!
We are routing contributions to the campaign through our fiscal sponsor, National Black Programming Consortium, which has been a very strong supporter and funder of our project. All contributions over $150 will be tax-deductible (less the value of the premium received.) "
"Georgia State University sincerely apologizes for the traffic problems resulting yesterday from the mounting of a student camera at the 14th Street Bridge,” the university said in a statement. “The camera was one of 18 used by students in an art project and deployed at various locations in the city. Georgia State Police are closely cooperating with the Atlanta Police Department in the removal of all of the cameras."
Here's a picture of the camera, which apparently had "art project, please don't disturb til Spring" written on its side. But at a glance, you could also say it's a suspicious-device-duct-taped-to-a-bridge crossing the busiest north/south thoroughfare in ATL.
