Lost Sugar Disco x Discerning Eye

The tarot has always been an amazing way for me to bridge the healer and the artist. I find that through reading the cards and tuning into the subconscious to receive information I have developed a deeper sense of trust in myself as well as experienced a surrender to the creative process in revealing the sacred language of symbolism.

When the Discerning Eye asked us to take over the gallery this December, The Lost Sugar Disco decided it would be  a great opportunity to examine this tool more deeply. We learned that through the process of recreating the cards, an endeavor we have been working on since 2007, they revealed themselves to us like never before.

Here are a couple of pieces from a series of photographs designed by Tiffany Abel, specifically for this show, and photographed by yours truly.

The show is currently hanging for the rest of the month at The Discerning Eye and features work from the four pillars of the Disco; Tiffany Abel, Joe Martin, Jared Wolf, and Myself.

Go check it out.

Invoking a trance of synth- pop wizardry, Brooklyn based musician Alain Paradis conjures a sound that exists somewhere between the smokey shadows of summer beats and the orchestral chill of a season fleeing.

Futuristic progressions collide with unfurling ambience

summoning delusions of a NYC that might have been.

Rewilding

This weekend I got to spend some time on Mt.Pocono with the lovely, Megan Donley. This woman is awe inspiring. Her life is dedicated to the light of sharing her wisdom through yoga at Lotus Moon Yoga,through song as a singer/songwriter with the entrancing Wild Hymns, and through process with her personal art. We have been working together on the healing path for a few years now and it has been truly amazing to witness as we have both grown so much since the first dream seeds of our adult lives were planted together. This weekend was spent rewilding ourselves by communing with the fern, dancing under the new moon, and getting naked in the woods. It felt good to return to self in the silence of the forest and recommit myself to laughter. I truly could not have asked for more. Keep your eye on this babe as her band is making some amazing moves and her studio is always offering soul opening experiences.

Bruce Banter

Lately I have found myself getting carried away in participating in events rather than photographing them. However, I can usually put myself in the position of observer for a moment or two. It is then a process of trust, hoping that what I did capture would be enough to retain the essence of the experience. I am not sure if that is what happened in this case but I did get this really amazing image of a beautiful human and local artist, Dave Ginolfi aka Bruce Banter that I really enjoy and feel like in some way truly describes the identity that is this human.
