In 2006 I lived in a building that had an underground tunnel with lots of pipes, stairs, and metal boxes. Late one night I had the idea to bang on things and record the sounds they made. I then took a snapshot of the area where sounds came from… The project was abandoned. In 2012 I took the sounds and mixed them into beats. “Potential Rhythm” is the final project. Here are two.

I have a beautiful red squiggly in my eye… This photograph was shot by hooking my dSLR camera up to 4 inches of bellows, a macro reversal filter and then a reversed old Pentax 50mm lens (put on backwards). Nothing beats the strange qualities of a makeshift lens.

I then pinned the images to the wall and called them my final project about documentary photography. I think I got an A.

Hello world. This is my blog… My name is Shane McGeehan and I am a digital artist, designer, and photographer. I am a visual person, and so I want my blog to be visual too. I don’t plan to write much, maybe a little thought or explanation. This blog will be about my creative process and experimentation.

As my first blog post I shall introduce myself using an old self-portrait. This is me holding a fancy birdcage in the forest. Enjoy.
