I am trying to be clear and concise in my writing. I am trying to write something meaningful or at very least something worth presenting. At the outset of this blog I intended to discuss narratives of modernity, of urban life, of individual experience in relation to larger narratives. I feel I have done some of this, but have just as often strayed into the territory of pure self-relation. I have also worked to combine my love of literature into my blog through various quotes and subjects in different posts. Again I think success here has been sporadic. This blog is in many ways a convergence of my two majors; Art and English Literature. I am currently immersed in the quest for representation of truth and form in art, and issues of representation, critical practice, intertextuality, and pedagogy in literature. I am working on writing that is about less my individual experiences and more about my individual experiences in relation to the larger formations of our surroundings. Hopefully some of this work both in photography and writing will appear in this space soon. For now I give you this photo of an empty bowl. There used to be ice cream here, but we both know where that went.
