This along with the first disorder piece have been really, really impressive.
ooh also, could you let me know your email again, I've misplaced it and want to send you a song I think you might like!
That's actually quite beautiful, that is. That's art.

Do you have a culturedgoat
seal of approval? If so, can I use it?
Well, your perfectionism has worked out here, really great expressions on both of your disorder photos. Keep them coming darling.
Love it. I feel like you're daring me to do, well, I'm not sure, but you are daring me.
You're right. The look was meant to be something along the lines of, "Just try and stop me."
Well impressed mate!!!!!!
*blinking* It's fantastic. Fascinating. Pleased you're not frowning in the shot (oi). Like the fact that your hand is so...deliberate, no sag or limp-fish look to it. I've seen dozens of photos of you, but I'm having a hard time seeing you in the girl in the photo. Something just seems really different. ?? Wonder how it'd change things to see daisies blast away...
Hm, maybe it's the sneering? My sneer muscles are poorly developed, since I don't do it much. Also, thank you for noticing the hand. I wanted it to look purposeful but not strained no tendons popping out or anything.
I agree with the art comment. I have liked your previous photos but this is actually art. Very nice.
Thanks, I appreciate this. I suspected I had made a cognitive leap recently in terms of composition and lighting and it's nice to have it affirmed.
Fuck. Wow. Just...wow.
I'm quite glad we watched that film.
And I'm sorry if you're still not feeling terrific. :( Is there anything I can bring you back from LA?
ME TOO. Thank you so much for agreeing to watch it with me. Not only was it a great way to spend the day recovering after our long weekend blow-out, it was inspiring.
I'm doing all right, thank you (again). On the upswing now. I don't need anything from LA, except maybe a bean and cheese burrito, but that wouldn't keep very well. ;-) I think it would be best if you have a great time and make some useful contacts.
Mmm. That is so lush and tasty an image. Give yourself a pat on the back then sell me a print I can splatter over my wall.
The only other data point I can offer for the expression is Private Piles just before he blows his brains out.
I imagine #3 deals with you making this image and is titled "Obsessive Compulsive".
Huzzah! Thank you. Prints will happen when I finish this series.
My boyfriend says that last sentence makes you the winner of the comments thread. I say damn you both all the way to Hades. ;-)
That's beautiful, effective and engaging! It teases with a hidden story the way the best of art tends to.... lots of levels and questions and a simple statement all at once.
Thank you. I hope to have this one printed poster-sized, as I think (I hope, anyway) that the Lomo images which you can't distinguish too well in the low-res version will provoke further scrutiny. See my reply
for more detail.
I kind of want this one and the previous disorder hanging in my house. Oh, when shall I be rich enough to buy art? Oh woe is me!!!
I'm flattered that you want them in your house. Since I have yet to work out how much I'd charge for these or what size I'd print them at, I have no answer to your question. ;-D
That is about as near perfect as you could get. I really dig it!
Fabulous. I love the look on your face and the slash of color. Again, very striking. I'm torn between wanting to ask you more details (several very specific questions) about the splattered lomo shots, begging for a high res version (so I can poke around and answer just one of them for myself) and not wanting to ask any of them lest I ruin the magic.
Interesting. While I don't think it should be necessary to know the technical details behind image production to enjoy the image in the first place, I don't usually find that learning them afterwards detracts from the enjoyment. If you don't mind, I'd love to hear the questions, even if you don't actually want me to answer them here.
Reminds me of escher's birds and fishes, but better. His creatures seem to be swimming/flying towards nothing. Just around in circles with no minds of their own. Transformed, rather than transforming. Your creature is transformation in midstream. Wonderful.
This observation tickles me to no end, because I wanted the image to look dynamic, like a stroboscopic capture, even though the elements that make up the image are static. It's not like I'm firing a bullet into an apple or a playing card, but I wanted this to have a similar feel. Thank you.
I love this series. This one is just perfect.
Thank you. This icon is perfect, although out of context here. Thanks for giving me permission to use it.
