something weird has been going on with my camera these past few days. My pictures are coming out with a bit of a soft focus on them. It is a mystery, but it has lead me to thinking a little bit about this project and the context of being here on shutterchance amongst people who generally seem to be really into the whole technique of photography.
This project, its not someting I think about too much. I just do it. Thats not to say that I'm not open to learning about photography. But I don't really think about it in terms of photography. For me my camera and my computer are devices which enable me to capture and share IDEAS. Fundamentally I'm currently concerned with ideas regarding self ownership, purpose and existential absurdity. I'm not going to articulate this clearly, but in a sense this isn't about photographs, its about me. It is Automorphism, a transhumanist artform. The pictures are extensions of myself, aspects of myself.
I'll have to think about this some more another day and I'll try and articulate it better. The oats are starting to drop off my face into my lap and I need to go clear up.
