I've always felt at home in the quiet of the after-hours carnival, in the early-morning rusty city, or the empty building in the night. Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti's 1958 "Coney Island of the Mind" put the surrealism of the man-made night world of electric light and shadows into words-- words which help me to express my feelings in images. "Oceanic 2" visits the Carolina Beach boardwalk in the off-season-- the only other witnesses to the empty bumper cars building are the undemonstrative fish.
