Compulsive Looking (2013-2014) Cured pig’s head, resin, 55cm x 45cm x 20cm, Unique #piginresin ‘The act of photographing, the gesture, has become part of our interaction with the world. You photograph just like you look. You know that you can never look at all of those photographs again (in all likelihood you never will - who has the time?), but it’s not about the photographs - it’s about the photographing. The act of photography might have turned into the equivalent of whistling a song, something you do, something that might or might not have beauty, a communicative act just as much as an affirmative act: I was there, and me being there means I had to photograph it.’ - JM Colberg from the Conscientious. In compulsive looking, I have taken a novelty object and placed it in an art context. I am asking for viewers to share images they have taken of the work. All I ask of you is to send me a copy of the photograph or tag the photograph so that I can at least attempt to keep track of photos. The work itself is just the beginning, the act of photographing it and the sharing the images will the art itself.
