I've been masticating some ideas lately, but have also been truly really busy. So for now, another image. This time it is of the lights used to illuminate a circular work of photography by Jeff Guess. The work is a huge circular band of paper on which are printed a number of images; the viewer needs to duck into the work and the viewer becomes the center of the circle, viewing the images.
It reminds me of the band of paper inside a zoetrope, a half-cylindrical device with slits on the side and illustrations on its bottom inner edge. When spun life animates. Zoetrope comes from the Greek zoe for life and trope for turn. Life just keeps on spinning....
