This evening join fellow AA Members & alumni at RICOCHET, set among a digital reconstruction of the 1930s AA Bar, as we explore the archive: its production, use, manipulation and increasing politicisation. Photos: AA Front and Back Members’ Rooms, 1930, from the AA Photo Library’s F R Yerbury Collection. Click link in bio for more information.

This was a painting I started in January, end ended up ruining beyond repair. I was so upset and anxious over that failure I put all my watercolors down for almost two months. Finally, I decided I loved the sky on this too much to give it up, so I scanned and and have spent many hours reworking the unicorn into something decent. It's still not done. I hate the mane and tail currently, but it's leaps and bounds above what I scanned in. .
The temple's second altar. This altar had a floral design on its ceiling, which I unfortunately couldn't recreate. This altar also had two stairwells, which are just visible on the far left and right sides of this photo. Onto the next project! This time, I thought I would rebuild the First Temple of Jerusalem, also known as the Holy of Holies. I'll start work on that soon. #Palmyra#TempleOfBel#TempleOfBaal#DigitalReconstruction#DigitalArchaeology
One of the altars inside of the Temple of Bel. When the temple was still in use, two doorways could be accessed inside of this altar, which would lead to a stairwell that went up to the roof. Both worshippers and priests were allowed to go up there. Up until the temple's destruction last year, the stairwells still stood. I have recreated them here. #Palmyra#TempleOfBel#TempleOfBaal#DigitalReconstruction#DigitalArchaeology
