So, I am actually still making photographs. Instead of getting off my ass and investigating, documenting and experiencing the urban fabric, I’m sequestered in my studio. Here are a few objects of my collection that I keep returning to… because of design as well as their particular place as objects in/out of time.
In the last couple of months, I’ve worked incredibly hard at something that seems incredibly easy to do: doing nothing. Of course it is actually impossible to not do. Human beings are automated machines designed to engage stimuli. However, I’ve been training myself at the timeless art of uni-tasking. Screw multi-tasking and the little high that it has given me in the past. Does a person really need to complete the tasks simultaneously?
There is something incredibly beautiful about doing less and less. Instead of the clenched-jaw feeling of having too much going on, I find myself actually asking myself what I want to do.
There’s nothing more liberating that having that…
