Today was wonderful… I’m fully vaccinated (got my Bill Gates 5G mind control nano bots), and for the first time in what feels like forever, I went to a bar show. I thought it was going to be weird, awkward, uncomfortable – but I instantly felt like I was back in 2019 again (subtle laugh). Seeing everyone’s smiling faces, hearing music, and dancing… it was just perfect.
Sometimes you just need to take a break from everything, step outside, and feed kale to a turtle. I’ll be honest, most of them didn’t care to eat it, which is odd, but this little guy crawled up out of the water for a bite!
Every so often I get sick of taking photographs, and I decide to melt them instead. I basically warp an image into itself in really small ways, then do it over and over hundreds of times. I created a process that saves each step as a frame, then when combined you get a very strange “melting” effect.
A new body of work seems to be in progress, but I am mostly just experimenting and playing around, and hoping a collection forms. I developed a process in Photoshop where I manipulate an image into itself over and over, in a loop, until the pixels melt apart. I then combined that back with the original image. I like that strange balance between abstract and photographic.
Went for a nice walk today and found a really cool tree. Here is a small piece of it. That’s all.
