The Underground Cathedral

Antenna Man

This is the only of the ten chapters which is not a video film put to music, but rather it is based on a conversation spontaneously taped in 1992 with a
saxophone player on a platform of the New York Subway. He then played for me, urged on by a very large dark skinned man who yelled out, “Blow us a note! Blow us a note!” as one can hear the sounds of my camera clicking in the background.

Based on only four worthy photos taken, I built an abstract collage and animated story line accompanying our surreal dialogue about discovering that we were both aliens from the same planet disguised in “earthly form.”
