The Edge of Certainty
This project emerged as an exercise in listening rather than a conscious effort to take photos of a subject. My main effort is to work with the cacophony of conscious thoughts in such a way that they may subside, and I can connect with silence to find out if imagery will speak to a receptive listener. In this regard, these images are both representations of moments in the world and very personal. There is nothing to understand; grasping at understanding can be a barrier to understanding.
If we cease effort at interpretation, what is left? Words cannot find the meaning — it must be felt, intuited, or experienced rather than expressed as an intellectual construct. The answers are not yet known to me. I hope that you will view these photographs with the intent to experience the intersection of certainty and uncertainty without effort at conscious interpretation.
