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.”

Aby M. Warburg collected these collages of associated organised with an affinity to one another, in accordance with ‘good company’.

These are the initial outcomes of our site studies from Dundee. We logged where all the signs in and around Tay Street were actually pointing instead of the routes people actually took. That way we get a feel for the artificial structure which a driver or pedestrian contructs in their head, based on memory or association and compare it to what the strict linear street signs are actually saying.

Found this really cool art collective called Uchronia, they built this massive structure for the burning man festival in 2006, and then burnt it down. www.uchronians.org
