Phan Quang. Re/Cover no. 8. 2013.

Wed. July 20th, 2016. 8:04 PM. Begin.

I am distanced from this photograph. From the material used and the distribution of space within the photograph. Technicalities have distanced me from finding Barthes’ punctum within my core.

 

End. 8:05 PM. Wed. July 20th, 2016.

P.S. I wonder why technicalities don’t always distance me. Is the distancing due to the technicality a punctum in itself? A punctum that exists in the relationship between the viewer and the image, versus existing in the image for the viewer to put life to?
