PHOTOGRAPHS

Puerto Rico
I was in Puerto Rico during the recent protests
and island-wide strike.
 They were impressive,
both positive and effective. 500,000+ people
of all ages turned out at each of the major
events, 
from a population of 3.2 million.


ART
I don’t entirely know how it happens, but
I’ve wrung
 
a lot of art from my iPad in
the past month. It’s on 
view at Art
galleries 2019 E, F, and G.

Enjoy!

Photography
 (Winchester, MA), the museum’s
25th Annual Juried Members’
 Exhibition
continues through September 1. Among
the photographs that the juror chose

is The Driver, which I took in Havana
last year. The Boston

review praised the exhibition’s
breadth and quality.

Meanwhile, a national political season is
(always?) upon us.

TINY DRONES ARE COMING

Yup, they’re coming. Consider this story(with video) from the NY Times a few days ago, about recent progress at Harvard: Unleashed, Robo-insect Takes Flight(The video is also on YouTube.) The fly is insect-sized and weighs 1/4 as much as a paper clip.
Robobee
When those devices are available with camera and microphone onboard, as imagined in the Squeezeshot Saga, will they be tools just for the powerful, or will we all use them to navigate our lives? What may be the consequences? 
The Saga explores those and related questions.

Do you like to read? You might enjoy the Squeezeshot Saga.
It’s a fiction that pretends to be nonfiction, set in the present day.
Its central subject: a new device, and an astonishing new freedom,
that are radically transforming our lives and civilization:

Imagine (Invisible Human)

The Saga is illustrated with original paintings,
photographs, and videos. 
It begins

EXHIBITS ELSEWHERE

  • For 3 years, I’ve been fortunate to have a photograph chosen for the annual Maine Photography Show in Boothbay Harbor. This year it’s The Driver, of a pedicab driver in Havana. (See Havana photos.) This year’s show will take place at the BRAF (Boothbay Regional Art Foundation) Gallery from 11am to 5pm every Thursday through Sunday, from Sunday, April 7 to Friday, May 3.
  • Some of my paintings, and a few words, appear in the Winter 2019 issue of The Maine Arts Journal. More publication coming soon.
  • Several days a week, I’ve been posting new work on Instagram (@marcusparsonsiii). They’re a river of images & a kind of art diary. (“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”– Pablo Picasso.).
  • And new works and older are always on display in the galleries, etc. at the Squeezeshot website: ART    PHOTOGRAPHY    SAGA    VERSE    VIDEO.
