Numerous of my things stop working from time to time, the latest batch here displayed in a hopefully pleasing, random-looking arrangement that I spent hours arranging, story follows. The electric kettle which was the cheapest available five Christmases ago, worked fine until it blew its fuse last week, taking the house fuse with it, and within five minutes, the gas bottle ran out of gas, so there was no way to heat the water for my morning tea. After replacing the house fuse, I heated the water for tea in the oven, and then went to town to replace the gas bottle and bought a new electric kettle, again the cheapest, but it was missing it's cord, so has to be taken back.
The speakers worked, but sounded terrible, so I hooked them to a little-used computer, and tested them, and they were okay; two weeks later, nada. No sound, no little green LED, nada. Trash.
The mouse, who knows? One day, kaput. My theory is too much cat fur inside. As for cats, that's what probably aced the kettle, too, see above, since the cats peed, as in caused urinal fluids to flow, onto the base of the kettle about once a week, causing me much cursing.
The earphones were okay until a cat bit through the cord. Then, nada. Dead.
The light fixtures were from an expensive lamp that had to be re-wired, by me, because the switch gave out.
The batteries are awaiting the green battery recyclage at the supermarket, but we always forget to take them.
As for the lighters, I rarely ever smoke, but the girl who cleans up the kitchen and wipes up after the cats has a thing for marlboros, and she had this drawer full of these, the last one of which gave out on the same morning as the gas bottle for the house.
Right after taking this photo, the batteries in the camera gave out, and the two auxiliary sets were dead as well.
That is my story. Hope in the face of despair at the inevitability of obsolesence.
I took this photo to demonstrate to the esteemed flickrite community that I do actually know how to work a camera.
One at a time...
Lately I've had this recurring fantasy that I backup, and then remove my entire flickr account. Don't ask my why, but it's a sensual temptation which has me piqued.
I thought that loading only one image at a time, no sets, no collections, just a single piece show. Nothing more. This show could change every day (considering how many photos I take every day) or every week. I'm not sure exactly in terms of frequency, but as an overview, I'm not sure if Flickr has turned out to be a positive look at my work. Does it matter? Is this just a photo based social networking platform? I think it is so much more than that... it is a place for art, expression, memories, and often a safe place to let out some pretty heavy feelings, thoughts, ideas, and words. But as I move away from the computer in my life, into the real world, I am discovering that use and purpose are serious questions. I don't need a gallery because I have flickr. I don't need a phone book because I have facebook. I don't need a diary because I have a blog. I don't need the radio because I have inter-web streaming. I don't need to ever get up from this chair. In a way it's disgusting. Out in the real world there is sun, and sound, faces, laughter, conversations, and action. I simply adore my new and far more physical life. But it then begs the question of what to do with my art, where to put it, and ultimately why to even do it at all? Is it a virtue to come out from behind the camera? Or is it a tragedy?
Have you ever been tempted to wipe the slate clean? To abandon your post? To tear it all down and begin again with another account?
It seems like a fairly violent thing to do to my art. So I am asking you where you're at, if you've crossed this terrain, or asked this question yourself before I haul off and do something which I really couldn't re do, or take back.
