Inspiration From The Queen Mary

This past Thanksgiving we decided to have brunch on The Queen Mary in Long Beach. The last time I was there was when I was in grade school during a field trip, but I was amazed at how much I remember. I am just as fascinated with the boat now, as I was years ago. It was amazing and hard to believe the brilliant engineering that goes into making such a huge vessel. There were pipes, tubes, machines, gauges, knobs, and just about every mechanical part you can think of inside that boat. During our tour of the Queen, we were guided down into the engine room and several other parts of the boat where paranormal activity has been experienced. There were dozens of deaths on the boat over the years including passengers and crew members. While down in the engine room I was inspired by all the engine parts and just couldn’t set my camera down. In this particular piece I combined my inspiration of the haunted ship with a few snapshots I grabbed of various electrical lines running across the walls of the engine room. One of my favorite artist is HR Giger, the genius behind the Aliens Movie and several other well known creatures. Many of the components in the Queen Mary engine room reminded me alot of his work.
