                    You may be wondering how Jim Egan was able to solve this history mystery about the first Renaissance building in America when it has baffled scholars for decades? First of all, I was a professional photographer for 35 years and the solution just happens to involve how we see. The eye is a miniature camera. The image on the retina is upside down and reversed left to right, and our brain automatically corrects it. Renaissance painters built camera obscura boxes to study the art of Perspectiva. Astronomers converted the interiors of cathedrals into grand camera obscura rooms. By tracking the solar disc, the image of the moving sun, across the floor, a camera obscura becomes a clock (telling hours and minutes) and a calendar (telling the day of the year). Secondly, I had tools not available to earlier researchers in the 1900’s: Google, Wikipedia, World Cat, Amazon and the thousands of research databases that came online after the year 2000. Thirdly, I came to the Tower with an open mind and simply followed a trail of clues left in the historical record. I noticed that the Scandinavians felt that the Vikings built it. The Portuguese felt the Portuguese built it. The Templar enthusiasts felt the Templars built it. And all of these earlier theorists thought the first Governor of Rhode Island was lying when he called the Tower “my Stone Built Windmill.” in his1677 will, because their dates of construction all precede 1677 But none of them ever fully investigated Rhode Island history. If they had, they would have asked themselves this most obvious question: Of all the people in Rhode Island, and all the places in Rhode Island, why does the first Governor end up owning this particular building? Most Rhode Islanders don’t even know who first Governor was? His name was Benedict Arnold. No, not the infamous Revolutionary war traitor. Governor Benedict Arnold was the great-great great-grandfather of the traitor Benedict Arnold. They lived a full century apart. But because of his notorious namesake, the first Governor has been all but written out of Rhode Island history. (Would you want to attend Benedict Arnold University?) But in writing a biography of Governor Benedict Arnold, I found he was just as instrumental as Roger Williams in defending freedom of conscience in early Rhode Island. In 1663, Benedict Arnold was appointed by King Charles II to be the first governor of Rhode Island. His fellow citizens reelected him 7 times, and when he died, 1000 people attended his funeral. Many clues indicate that Benedict Arnold knew all about the astronomical alignments in the classical-church-Tower designed by John Dee. Not only did Benedict know all about the earlier 1583 colonization attempt, he forever memorialized into the very fabric of this state. What does that mean? Well, you see, back in 1583, the Spanish Ambassador to London, Don Bernadino de Mendoza, had warned the Queen that when Spain found the location of the colony, they would “slit the throats” of all the Englishmen they found there. So, John Dee, the Queen’s legal advisor, and mastermind behind the whole mission, devised a secret code symbol and a secret code word for the colony. The secret code symbol was the “Anchor of Hope.” In 1663, the first Governor Benedict Arnold, adopted as the Anchor of Hope as the state symbol. And the Anchor of Hope is still the state seal today. And (drum roll please) the secret code word for the 1583 colony was: “RHODE.” Yes, the first Governor adopted that too. And that’s still in use today. Furthermore, written in the arrangement of the stones in the arches of the Tower are not only a representation of Dee’s “hidden blueprint,” but also, written in Greek, are the letters of the word RHODE. Nowadays, in the complex world of academia and business, people are, by necessity, forced to specialize. But to understand who built the Tower, one must think like a Renaissance man, an interdisciplinarian, a comprehensivist. The great thinkers of the Renaissance, like John Dee, were not only interested in various fields of study like geometry, number, astronomy, architecture, optics, music, and theology, they were fascinated by how these fields were all interrelated. I have written a series of ten books and twenty short videos about my discovery, and opened up the Newport Tower Museum to share my story. Someday this Tower will make Newport a World Heritage Site. To help the economy of Rhode Island and all of New England, let’s make it happen today.

                      I had the privilege to be an artist-in-residence at Lobethal Primary School in the Adelaide Hills in early 2012, and for 10 weeks worked with the students and teachers on a photography program. We used early photographic techniques to teach about basic principles of light, and how an image is formed. One of the elements of the project involved converting one half of the garden shed (used for sports equipment storage) into a Camera Obscura. The details of the project are in the residency blog at www.LobethalPrimaryAIS.snappages.com. It's not a perfect example of a Camera Obscura, and it would have been great to have had white walls for the image to be more clearly seen...but, this is what we made and this is what we saw. This is a timelapse of a few 30s exposures shot inside the shed. Fun and interesting!
