Heather Carroll - Raptured or Captured  Fotografie

"Raptured or Captured" is a venture into unmapped territory. This photo collage gallery looks at cyber-space, what is it? Can we GO there? Like really? Physically?
I am fascinated as to how myths are born, what is the tipping point that gives birth to a myth or urban legend? How is it nurtured, how does it evolve?
Not wanting to pick up on existing urban legends I decided to create one of my own, that is to say, I allowed a real incident to germinate an idea that has quite frankly become somewhat of a preoccupation (so my friends tell me).
I DID actually see those famous white sneakers in Nova Scotia, Canada two years ago (AND I have a witness). Everything you see or read here is begotten from that first (?) sighting on a lonely beach in Nova Scotia.
The mystery, the titillation, the fear, even a certain hope (see the "Beam me up ET" graffiti) knit together a very plausible theory - at least for me - I DID see those first sneakers and I DON'T pick up my cell phone without checking the id. You never know....
Thanks to all my friends all over the world for their contributions.
