The Free Expression Tunnel – Part 1






The images above were from 2005, when my friend and neighbor Paxton helped me out with a class project. The idea was to create a movie from still images of something from beginning to end. The last image is of me; he used a photo of me wearing trendy glasses and was taken when I used to sport longer hair.
A description of the tunnel by NCSU says that

Since the 1960’s, the Free Expression Tunnel has been the University’s answer to combat graffiti on campus. Located on Central Campus the tunnel connects the two halves of campus split by the railroad track. The Free Expression Tunnel gives students a venue for expressing their thoughts and feelings about anything–from “Happy Birthday” to announcing club and organization meetings.
