Power Lines

Al Wildey's avatar Al Wildey

"Power Lines" is a composite image created by making a series of photographs while completing a 360° walk around an electrical line structure. Those photographs are merged into a single image to create a sense of movement through time and space. Following the visual lines are 'power lines' -- quotes from Donald Trump typically beginning with "I" or "My". Hence, the title refers to both physical and rhetorical "Power Lines." Sample quotes: -My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault. -I love the poorly educated. -I've always had a great relationship with the blacks. -I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist. -My whole life is about winning. -I’ve always won, and I will continue to win. -I think I’m much more humble than you would understand. -I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.
