There is a wonderful John Dominis photograph in Catherine’s office at the John Cleary Gallery (don’t miss the Renate Aller: One View, Ten Years opening this Saturday between 6-8) that reminds me of some videos I’ve been holding on to for a while. So… two birds/one stone and all, I thought I would give you train spotters out there a shout out!
“Southern Pacific Engine, Donner Pass, CA” 1949
The first is actually the fifth in a thirteen part series of that gives us a “conductors view” of the 7.5 hour/300 mile journey from Bergen to Oslo: [via io9]
Next up is video artist Graeme Taylor’s supremely slow motion “drive by” of the Bath Spa depot in Britain. I especially love that you can see the flickering of the halogen lights in the station beginning around :49.
