TyYAT [Twenty Years Ago Today]

Twenty years ago, in April 1999, I was on a long road trip as part of a larger and very personal search. At the time all I had was a tiny yet expensive digital camera made by Kodak a DC 20. I of course carried medium and large format film cameras, and this images will one day resurface as prints for one reason or another.

Quoting others?

What museum curators liked and encouraged when access to art was location limited, the access to the work was scarce, and the work itself was expensive to create, no longer has much, if any, connection to the value of art in the current age. It might for collectors but not for most creators, appreciators and users of the work. “

Experiments in publishing?

From April 15th Craig Mod is shunting off on a 1,000 kilometer walk across a chunk of Japan. Six planned weeks, possibly a few more. The trails and sub-trails he will be walking are numerous, but broadly speaking, he is walking from Tokyo to Kyoto along the historic Nakasendo highway.

I just signed up for this interesting SMS publishing experiment. From an artist in Japan, Craig Mod.

The premise is simple and something I long wondered about. He will text an image once a day over six weeks as he walks 1000 kilometres in Japan.

This is the new edit with the connections between images in place. Sometimes you need to see these things in the flesh. This may change. I am expecting a batch of paper soon. So I may go bigger yet before mounting and installing later this month.
