oh hello again DA! since I don't have access to a darkroom any longer, i've been painting with bleach instead. i'll be sticking some of those up here pretty soon.
my life has changed so much since i was last here. that's just the nature of existence, i suppose, and it's a pretty good thing that i'm only embarrassed by my earnest assumptions that life will always be the way it was, and not as embarrassed by how obviously amateurish my photography skills were. it seems like it's even harder to take meaningful artistic photos now, with the advent of phone cameras and on the fly digital manipulation. i commend all of you who still do so.
since i'm pretty much just grading and working on my thesis nowadays, there won't be much new stuff from me for a while. this used to horrify me...how could i let stupid LIFE get in the way of ART?! maybe i'm becoming complacent. it's all about balance- balancing the loneliness of separation from the vivacity of city life and my partner with the quietude of work and independence, balancing creative output with the day to day slog of finishing a degree, balancing what i want to happen today with what needs to happen by tomorrow.
neither art nor philosophy can happen in a vacuum. i need to leave pullman and start living in the world.
