Speciously Valid

Science defines a photograph. All science does is define a photograph.  To dissect, to analyse, to investigate, to examine, to inspect, to study… actions all done in order to check whether reality is real, whether reality persists.

Perception utters, “It must be because it is what it is!” Memory replies, “It must be because it was what it was, and what was was, hence is.” Put the onus on memory, and memory cannot see. Put the onus on perception, and perception cannot know.  Perception utters, “It is so because what is cannot…

Let us concern ourselves with being. If we follow the route set by academicians to easily explain Heidegger to students, Being experiencing anxiety, which it has beforehand occluded, or, which it has been enabled beforehand to occlude, the source of, finds itself annoyed experiencing its experiences as nothing.

The Wizard of Oz

In essence, Art has always been a trace of alterity. But at some point in the nineteenth century there seems to have occurred a very curious development, namely that the painter walked out and in his stead appeared the photography apparatus.
