You always manage to create a sense of drama (even mythology) in the supposedly ordinary moments in any given time.

Certainly, the antique photo effect takes such moments out of our perception of moment as now.

Love the 'signature' photo at the end. For some reason, it reminds me of Igmar Bergman's opening sequence in "Persona" where we are made to understand that it is the artist as magician who has the ability to manipulate our perceptions, even though we believe ourselves to be observing 'reality'. The art of photography (or cinematography) is so easily accepted as absolute recording of 'reality' as being absolute 'truth'. Manipulation cannot be part of 'camera'...

Wonderful take on the fact that 'camera' is held, with prejudice, by the photographer!

We know they're real, but you make them look halucinatory! I love it!

Great self portrait, too.

I've been having an exhausting sequence of strange moments with my husband's having to have surgery & more emergency admittances over the last 3 months. Haven't had a chance to review/re-view this space.

I have never seen moments as being 'normal'. Our lives are surreal from the moment we draw our first breath. Every moment is its own. That's why I adore your work!

The 'moment' I start taking life for granted and try to order it is the moment I have given up on experiencing existence. That moment won't come until I cease to be.

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
