Have decided to use the pictures and video we derived from dimantling the camera to illustrate my felings about perception and time, and also edit them to create something new, i really love the videos we took too, would be good to be able to edit them down, perhaps work them into a pdf?

This is a description of Scott Fitzgerald by Ernest Hemmingway, think its really beautiful:

” His talent was as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a Butterfly’s wings. At one time he understood it no more than the butterfly did and he did not know when it was brushed or marred. Later he became concious of his damaged wings and of their construction and he learned to think and could not fly anymore because the love of light had gone and he could only remember when it had been effortless.”

E Hemmingway, A Moveable Feast

A video of the dismantling. When it goes white is when the lens is taken off. Reminds me uncomfortably of getting lazer eye surgery when they take the top layer off your eye. not something i would wish to repeat.

Have been experimenting with a fairly ancient digital camera, we dismantled it and recorded the results, am interested in how when the lens is removed there is no longer any ‘filter’ for the light, so it tries to take in everything.

Read ‘the Doors of Perception’ by Aldous Huxley yars ago, but there is a lot of it which really seems relevant to the percetion of time, namely how physicists look at time as a granular entity, i.e. is in bits. could be a connection with virtual reality? Huxley says:

“…could never have perceived that what rose and iris and carnation so intensely signified was nothing more, and nothing less, than what they were – a transience that was yet eternal life, a perpetual perishing that was at the same time pure Being, a bundle of minute, unique particulars in which, by some unspeakable and yet self-evident paradox, was to be seen the divine source of all existence.”

Saw a great episode of horizon on Tuesday this week, concerning time and our perception of it. Probably only available on on demand for the next week, but have been thinking a lot about incorporating the perception of time in some way into my final piece…

“There are many hallelujahs that exist and the perfect and broken ones have equal value, its a desire to affirm my faith, not in a formal religious way, but with enthusiasm and emotion.”
