WTC: From the Inside Out

Back in March as I was working on the documentary arts project on the World Trade Center, I spent some time near the Church St. fence looking out for some while at the scene from the inside, looking out. Every time you pass by the site there are point and shoot cameras abound, foreign and American tourists and New Yorkers, too, curious to get a glimpse of what goes on at the site. In fact, I found that any insight the public gets readily excites them, and fair enough– it’s a 16-acre site completely fenced off and the only view you can get of it are through the ripped canvasses on the fences or from towers surrounding it. Few people really grasp what is going on at the World Trade Center– it is rebuilding– save that there is just a whole lot of politics and seemingly nothing else happening. Here’s a little glimpse of what Church St. looks like from inside of the site, curiosities and passersby, all day, everyday.

as the weeks count down

Not too much to report on save for the promise that more words are on their way, I’m about to surrender to a long sleep and forget the fact that the last segment of college will begin next week. A pic or two from the start of a six-month long project documenting the reconstruction of the WTC.

About certain my eyes are half closed right now, but very much determined to keep this blog updated, two photos from today– the start of the WTC project I’ll be working on with another photographer, Vicky, for the next few months… exciting times.

the working class diner

Filed under: blog — Tags: , , , — nicoletung @ 6:58 pm

in the working class diner / the shadows were whole and consumed / a hat there, a head dipped here / a quag, that when looked upon, / seemed as incongruent as it was perfect – / there was no brooklyn point to it / the pulaski was in a gloom / but the main point was the slow crawl, when on the table, / that went under one’s skin / in the pause between a trapping of one kind / and the exemption from another. 

Excuse (to me) very much the lack of posting– had for a time been handcuffed to pieces of paper, and trawling for information was demanded of me in the most absurd of forms. I will be taking the galleries down from this site some time soon, to finally (if ever, eventually) have on a proper website just because that’s supposed to be what adults do and somehow it looks professional and you sell yourself like so. On another front, here be the unveiling of the WTC documentary arts project of which three other photographers and myself are a part of. On yet another front, should anyone be in NY, I would recommend going to see ‘In Conflict’. It’s a thought provoking, sometimes hard-to-swallow play by Temple University students, adapting the interviews by journalist (and my professor) Yvonne Latty, of Iraqi war veterans in 2006. (Showing at the Barrow St. Theater). Check out some photos I took on opening night, after meeting the awesome cast and some of the veterans who made it there, and the NYT review that was being read at 2am at the after party, off a crackberry since no one could wait until the late city edition to come out. Brilliance.
