York Stereoscopic Association Newsletter
Sam Moree, Jerry Marks,
Sheldon Aronowitz, Bill Meredith, Jamie Smith and I along with hundreds of
others shared a great sunny Sunday at the Holocenter on Governors
Many thanks to Jonah Levy
for making the first of our NYSA Lecture Series a
success. And the great job he and his staff have done to create a holo-home for
the work created by talented Artists. Trying to balance the requirements of
Artists, the City of NY and a Ferry Schedule is a monumental task. Actually,
it's one of the qualifications to run for Mayor. Or it should be!
Well, summer's almost here
and we're making great strides with the NYSA.
I'll keep it short, but
please keep thinking about what you can do to make the NYSA a success. Like
writing the next Newsletter!
Later on this summer we'll
be setting up a State of the Art, 42" Glasses Free 3D display showing images
from NYSA members.

Also, please join
our Meetup to stay in the loop
for our local meetings.

- RIGHT BETWEEN YOUR EYES!
On Sunday June 8th, we
launched our NYSA Lecture Series at the Holocenter. It happily
coincided with Figment and if you've never attended the Figment event, you just
gotta go! Particularly if you have young children or are one at heart.
Coincidentally, a friend of mine named, Denny Daniel, the owner and mastermind
of the Museum of Interesting Things
was on Governors Island taking part in Figment and so he became our next
door neighbor for a day. Even donating gadgets for my lecture! We'll soon post
an interview with him (in 3D of course) filmed by Bill Meredith, Jamie Smith and
myself. My lecture was filmed by Jamie and we'll post that after I've decided
whether he got me from my good side.
Time flies so you really
have to head to the Holocenter before the caravan rolls on out to another part
of Gotham. Come see and support Carlton Bright (Sunday
7/13) and Sheldon Aronowitz (Sunday 7/27) as they give their lectures on the
colorful History of 3D. Check our website for details.
I had not been to
Governors Island for some time so my recollection of it was of old, musty
buildings.Something from the set of the Twilight Zone. Well, parts of it still
look like the prop department's trailer blew over but you'll never get a better
view of Lower Manhattan framed by blue sky and green grass. There are great
paths and it's really turning into a haven in the city. It's like Central Park
with a moat! Having been born and raised in Manhattan, I must admit it's
surreal. If you can't find something great to shoot in 3D on Governors Island
you might as well throw the camera overboard! So make a little time for
yourself, visit the Holocenter and the other great Gallerys that are there
briefly for the summer.
And let's plan on a
Summer 'Governors Eye Ball'. What the heck, the designated driver is the Ferry
Captain! More to come...
