Its been interesting thinking about my old work. I am realizing how attracted Ive always been to decay and Impermanence. I did a lot of work that I intentionally rigged to slowly die. I knew this was kind of twisted, professionally, but I couldnt embrace the idea of going full archival and turned instead to anti-archival. Archival wasnt fun, I preferred work that was profoundly wabi-sabi. I was up front about it if someone asked me about the future integrity of a piece. I unflinchingly listed the materials used in it, and gave my best guess as to what would happen to it over time. Its a wonder I ever sold anything at all.

I think I`ve accidentally discovered a medium that allows me to destroy something while making an archival image. Photography is super fast. I can fully execute an idea in one afternoon. It doesn`t usually work that way, though I can spend days chasing an idea around until I nail it. With painting it would possibly take me weeks  there were sketches and serious studies before I did the painting. With photography, I can compress that process to an afternoon, or maybe a week while I`m working on other ideas. Ideas might suddenly come together and do something amazing. Its a blast.

The photo below has two established elements, and a couple of new ideas. Its called you are the ocean.
