ER

The Emergency Room is a global art initiative I stumbled across when I lived in Paris in 2008. Founded by the Danish artist/activist/ideas man Thierry Geoffrey, the concept provides a template that can be launched anywhere in the world. It encourages artists and citizens to engage with their environment on a daily basis. This process of experience articulates ideas and views through traditional, inter-disciplinary and reactive techniques to create pieces that comment on and express individual and collective interpretations of current affairs, or 'emergencies'. The exhibition changes everyday, and values interaction and participation above aesthetics and politically correct attitudes. It also vows against delayed responses and champions the role of the Artist as a relevant vessel for communication, drawing attention to how information is controlled by third party institutions, government and privately owned media corporations. The project reflects the reality of natural time and puts emphasis on the importance of consistent and informed discussion, inaction is not an option unless that itself is the reaction or response.
I encourage everyone to have a look at the website.

... wish i could email Virginia Woolf and tell her much i love her writing, and appreciate the beautiful sprawling imagery she creates, and inspires within me the need to convey my photographs in such a manner.. but alas
"...life had thrown up this wreckage; shop windows full of coloured paste, and one stood stark with the lethargy of the old, stiff with rigidity of the old, looking in. " (from Mrs Dalloway)

.. Alexander McQueen. it wasnt your time to go. it was YOUR TIME. you inspire me now, and always ..








.. the ball. the chord. the boards. the wall. i'm discovering the experience of taking photos, can often not be about the photo at all. rather, its meaning lies in the meeting. that you might bump into an image, or a collection of images, in a combination that might possibly have never been seen before. or, that, when given a frame these combinations can compel fresh desires of how the world shapes itself, in every moment. moving. or still. i had a few frames left on a roll the day i took both these "photos". a pigeon stuck in a shop window, and a basketball orbited by an extension chord. i was not going to be precious with my film for the sake of such moments to be sacrificed for mortal nostalgia...and then forgotten like dreams an hour after waking.

I never wanted this blog to have written content. However, certain events in my life have compelled me to write this, and that will be the end of it.

To anyone I have worked with or will ever work with, to anyone I have ever taken photos of or will ever take photos of - THANKYOU will never be a strong enough word to describe my gratitude. You have made moments in my life worth capturing, and worth sharing with the world. so, thankyou, is the only word
