This Week In Experimental Vol 75


Hello Experimenters!

I honestly cannot believe that tomorrow is December 2021. I was listening to a podcast expressing the same incredulity last night, and one of the hosts called it “2020 Part 2.” I chuckled, but it was a tired, tired chuckle.

How do you conceptualize this last year? What will you take with you from 2021 into 2022?

I’m pondering the passage of time increasingly as I dive into a long-term short project–more on that in the Journal Prompt.

What are you pondering these days?

In solidarity,

Things to Do

Assignment: Find a place you can access every day for the next week (in your home, office, somewhere outside). Take three pictures there every day for the next week to measure time. Try to focus on the same item/shadow/framing each time.

Journal: On Wednesday, I’m staring a yearlong project to help me process all these big changes in my life. I’m planning to make a cyanotype every single day for the 365 days. If you were to use a visual practice to track a year, how would you do it? Cell phone pictures? Video? Film stills? An animation? A shadow?
