The layout of the hotel makes no sense whatsoever. Stuart Ullman’s office has a nice big window in the middle of the building, the Colorado Room has multiple floor to ceiling windows with a mystery hallway behind them. There’s hallways that lead into walls, windows that can only be seen from inside, hotel rooms that seem to overlap the same space, the hotel interiors have nice right angles while the outside doesn’t. The freezer flips sides of the hallway between shots. The spaces between the doorways in Room 237’s hallway are far too small to actually contain any rooms of that size. This was done deliberately for dramatic/horror effect.
EXHIBITION: Black Chronicles II at Rivington Place, London, UK from September 12 – November 29, 2014
Autograph ABP presents Black Chronicles II, a new exhibition exploring black presences in 19th and early 20th century Britain, through the prism of photography – particularly studio portraiture. The exhibition presents over 200 photographs, which present new knowledge and offer different ways of seeing the black subject in Victorian Britain, and contribute to an ongoing process of redressing persistent ‘absence’ within the historical record.
While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
