I took a course in documentary photography. We needed to create a final project, but I made nothing… Instead, I brought my old Polaroid camera to the last class and took pictures of the final critique as it was happening. I then pinned the images to the wall and called them my final project about documentary photography. I think I got an A.
In 2006 I lived in a building that had an underground tunnel with lots of pipes, stairs, and metal boxes. Late one night I had the idea to bang on things and record the sounds they made. I then took a snapshot of the area where sounds came from… The project was abandoned. In 2012 I took the sounds and mixed them into beats. “Potential Rhythm” is the final project. Here are two.
