We conquered the forests, hallelujah
-and there’s no place left to hide
What lies in between you and the photograph is time already past
– your distance from history. A photograph can be viewed as materiality secured,
secured right there in the ruin. Like earth sitting still.
I appropriate landscape and allow it to toss itself in, taking on a new meaning. It stands forth as a primeval landscape, where the moment has already eroded.
What places itself in between you and this ruin is an emblematic fragment, which stands forth as transcendent, sealed-up meaning and lies in between meaning and physique: the subjective interpretation. Or as the myth as a state.
