Hearing is vision, othered. At some point in history, increasing image resolution started to only have an effect on film, leaving negligible obvious impact on photography. That is tantamount to saying that with the tremendous increase in image resolution evinced in the last decade or so, perceived motion happened to have been affected more drastically…

À Dieu, Dasein

Who are you? Marco. What are you? I am…  Having to state its case, Dasein would not make recourse to being, or assume being, to explain its being… Who/what are you? (simply) Dasein. Dasein is simultaneously identity and substance. Dasein’s concern with its being is concern about that seemingly non-deferrable concern about seemingly needing to…

I(:) met you

Picture yourself in an art gallery eyeing the mysterious beauty of some post-modern painterly disaster hanging on one of the gallery walls. Conceive now the world you are standing in, the very same world that holds in its bosom those atrocious paintings hanging on the gallery walls, as one unitary painterly mess. Yourself now, as Pantocrator,…

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…

The photograph is the result of light painting itself. The painting is the action of the hand showing. In the former case, there is no translation involved in beholding the objet d’art: light paints itself on the photographic film/sensor and the result is seen by the eyes which function through the transmission of the same…

The subjected action of subjection emanating from the subject acts upon me as Subject and subjects me. Intentions are knowable a posteriori. The subject subjected as Subject is hence object to the Other. The object is…

Everything is in itself

The Other irks perception; perception cannot withstand otherness. The Other is a thorn in the side of perception. The world is first seen. The perturbation, the anomaly, is an Other mindlessly perceived, the Other impinging upon perception. The world is first seen. Everything approaches Dasein from a future; all beings hold a futurity in perception.…

The photographic is the illusion of depth. Depth conveys to any image the illusion of the real. Depth extends into motion, which are both ultimately conventions that retain their respective dynamics through the simple positioning of body (or image of body) within the more global image we call the world. If this triad, depth, motion,…

The Crutches of Reality

Perception is predictive. The predictions made by the perceptive system are based on the assumption that an assumed reality ought to be somewhat similar to those predictions. An assumed reality is borne by memory and hence is born out of the past, a past which comes to be constituted as such by the very futurity…
