My view on long exposure

 a. To express Bergsonian Time: beyond the insipid snapshots of time, the continuous indivisible Time that only is approximated in the clock time version needed to “be on time” in our daily tasks or to perform technical computations.

b. To give the feeling of a painted scene. I believe that in this way one may get what Proust’s complex recovering of one’s past  is about. I have the idea that this process may well be extended to pick up from a foreign (to us) location thoughts and feelings  not experienced by ourselves from a past embedded in the location.Ref. Rupert Shelldrake Morphogenetic Field?

The face

Far from being a natural entity, the face is a constructed object, which operates in conjunction with two regimes of signs: the signifying, despotic regime, in which every signifier refers to another signifier in an endless play of signification controlled by a central, despotic power; and the postsignifying, passional regime, in which a point of obsessional fixation determines a dominant reality and constructs a subject.

My words

"Thinking means: setting sail. How they are set is important. Words are sails. How they are set makes of them concepts" (W.Benjamin)

La vida?

Life?
Tourism. Behind the facade, just falseness.
Life resides elsewhere, where there is study and meditation, daily treasures of simplicity and peace to the spirit

Long Exposure Studies

Portobello, Scotland

Morning at the Window

They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens,
And along the trampled edges of the street
I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids
Sprouting despondently at area gates.

The brown waves of fog toss up to me
Twisted faces from the bottom of the street,
And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts
An aimless smile that hovers in the air
And vanishes along the level of the roofs.

T. S. Eliot, 1888 - 1965
