A Queer Little God

  Nothing is distinct from its other; the foundation of development is the sinking sun. The hands of youth interlocked in a ring, dancing around the microcosm before “we all fall down” a-tissue, a-tissue, a tissue of life. The object, in phenomenological space, is created from the inside out; neural space constitutes it from the…

The Labyrinth with Personal Emotion (Lust and Death)

May 2003.  I walk through the automatic glass doors of St. Mary’s Hospital, Leeds. My eyes struggle to refocus under the cold exuberance of the fluorescent strip lights that held the building in a state of awful reverence. The stench of bleach burns the inside of my nose as if an antidote to the lassitude…

The Labyrinth within Literary Space

………………………………………….. ‘Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!” The Labyrinth of literary space will fill your head with ideas, ideas which you can not quite tell what are.

Within Corporate Time we often digest production with a passive disregard and in so doing metamorphose the commodity into the Magical Relic:…

The Labyrinth within Natural Time

Every living cell vibrates with a memory of each stage of its creation and evolutionary development. Every cell vibrates with a future echo of its own demise. These memories, these pre-faces and post-faces that weave…

Nomads & Orphans: International Mobile Photography

The images, uploaded to the social media sites then have an immediacy of consumption and exchange (social media sites are fundamentally amalgams of distribution, consumption and exchange). The Mobile phone artists will be able to see how many people are viewing their posts (consumption) and the exchange follows with people leaving comments, liking or sharing.

The immediacy of this operation, combined with the seamless integration of image and text into one message, creates a form of speech that restores the traditional relationship of photography with truth while at the same time causing photography to lose its separate identity and disappear into the amalgam of textual-aural-visual communication.
