This is a clip from from Michael Kangas' multimedia installation on
hoarders for the Photojournalism class. It was projected under the
stairs in the CALT building for the final critique. The sound is not
well represented in this video. It was much more impressive in person!
I took this
photo of the original Merry Prankster bus at Ken Kesey's house in Oregon
in 1998. I came to Kesey's house to do his portrait but he quickly
sent me off into the woods as if he knew I would find something of
interest there. When I came across the bus rotting in the forest I was
blown away. This was the bus that Neil Cassidy drove! This was a
historic relic from the 60s! I shot a roll of color negative film and
then got back to the more important goal of photographing Kesey.
while scanning old negs and slides I found the roll of film I shot of
the bus and was at first upset when I realized that chemicals had been
eating away at it. After thinking about it for a while I decided to
print the image to see what it might look like. The end result is an
image I find to be far more representational of the bus and those who
rode it. I really could not have hoped for a better disaster to occur.
And here is the Image I eventually took of Kesey.
Not sure who any of these people are? http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2011/09/01/magictrip/
