The Cloud of Don’t Caring

Lost and rarely seen Destroy All Monsters images from the 1970s.

For Excursus IV, Destroy All Monster’s Cary Loren gave Primary Information over 300 images that are blown-up and projected onto the the museum’s inner facade, though visible to all passerby from dusk til dawn. It’s a love letter to creeps, ghouls, first dates and bus stop bandits.

For those who are not in Philadelphia, Loren has given us a sneak peak at some newly re-discovered images he’s been rescuing from old contact sheets. (All Images Copyright Cary Loren)
