Dancing About Architecture...
Laurie Anderson never actually said
anything like "writing about art is like dancing about architecture". But she should have. It always felt appropriate, and it's the sort of irritating thing you'd expect her to say (you
can't imagine dancing about the Louvre?!). So here's a little confused dancing about the issue...
Photolalia is basically a place where I post and discuss some of my images and what went into making them, or what they mean to me, or what I think about someone else's images, or a few words about something connected to images or the biz (what little I know of it). It's basically an extension of the pretentious (and very old) Photolalia
page on my original Pandemonia
site. Yes, it's all about taking the mystery out of things that should speak for themselves, but that's what happens when you think too much. Photolalia is also (obviously) not aimed at an academic or intellectual audience. Or those who think that Afterall
(God bless their souls -- I'm actually an avid reader...) is the pinnacle of clear writing.
Many of the images here can also be seen at Pandemonia or my other websites; where appropriate I'll probably include a link to larger versions on those sites.
